    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. In honor of the sea turtles and the people who care for them, Alejandro de Esesarte creates this beautiful wall art sculpture.

    Story Behind the Art:


    Autism has given me success beyond my wildest dreams… I have economic independence and total liberty. My art is the only connection to the rest of humanity. It is my identity and my sanity. I was born in Agua Prieta, Sonora near the border of Arizona with its colorful flowers. I feel influenced by both cultures but, above all, I identify with Mexico. From the time I was a boy, I was attracted to art. My mother painted and I admired her creative ability. I began to draw cartoon characters at first. Later, as I became better at it, I drew animals and plants. I then learned watercolor, which is something I still enjoy.

    When I was 11, I began collecting butterflies. I'd catch them and keep them in a wooden box to exhibit them. When I was 20, I became an ecologist and defender of nature, and this is when I began to create animals in clay and resin. In 1908, my grandmother crafted a tray with a metal butterfly. My technique is similar to cutout metal, but more rudimentary. From this, I became inspired and started working in metal for its versatility. In 2004, I set up my workshop. I create each piece with my passion for drawing, and seeing the finished work fills me with satisfaction. I am very strict with quality because I'm very demanding in my work. I'm a perfectionist, and demand a great deal of myself because I love to watch people's faces, see their smiles when they see my work. A desire to get ahead motivates me. Today I have a workshop, a cockatoo named Coco and a cactus collection. Those are all the tools I need to continue working.

      Adequate gauge steel, laser cuts are perfectly placed. The shell stands forward of the rest of the turtle by about an inch, giving the piece a nice dimensionality, more interesting than flat art on the wall. The painting of the turtle is very, very well done, with a nice matte finish and colors that look like the colors of the Carribbean. Four integrated hanging rings means that the turtle can easily be oriented to suit your preference. It's nice when an item far exceeds your expectations for it; this one certainly did. Delivery time was also quite reasonable (arrived ahead of schedule) especially considering this is shipped from Mexico.

      This is a great patio wall decoration. The colors are very attractive and looks great mounted as it is climbing up the brick wall. It is larger than expected which was a nice surprise.

    • Love these beautiful hand-painted turtles!
      Verified Purchase

      I initially bought one and when I received it I was so pleased with the beauty and high quality that I bought two more for my home in Florida. I sprayed them with a satin clear coat rust-proof paint and have placed them in a grouping on the house wall of my deck. I found some beautiful sea turtle batik fabric online and had accent pillows made for the outdoor furniture grouping. A very peaceful sanctuary!

      Love the size and weight and it is beautiful but the colors aren't nearly as vibrant as depicted in the picture. Lack of vibrancy gives it less detail and dimension. Maybe because they are individually painted it will vary from piece to piece
