Artist: Diederik van Apple
Title: Peace Turtle
Technique: Chrome acrylic resin
The artwork “Peace Turtle” created by artist Van Apple is a 40x25x25cm sculpture that portrays a turtle with a helmet symbolizing its shell.
The choice of the turtle as the theme of the sculpture can be interpreted as a reflection on the importance of nature protection and preservation, as well as a metaphor for the need to “protect” ourselves in a world that can be hostile.
The use of a helmet as a symbol of the turtle’s shell reinforces this message, suggesting that protection is essential for survival in a constantly changing world.
The sculpture is a contemporary artwork that can be appreciated both as a decorative object and as a reflection on important themes related to the environment and the protection of life.
