Sea Turtle mural

This mural of a sea turtle in Aboriginal style art was created by Lewis & Clark College students and the Aboriginal family they stayed with on their Australia Overseas Program in the spring of 2000. Everyone contributed to the mural by painting their handprints and footprints in the turtle's shell. Edy and Dino, two Aboriginal artists, worked on the outline and detail of the turtle (with dot painting).
