Part of Nick Legeros’s Dreams of our Children series, the Boy on Turtle illustrates a longing to live in harmony with nature.  As the sculptor explained, “I wanted to create a work of art with a subject that would have universal appeal as well as be pleasing to the eye.  We all have dreams as children and at this tender age did not distinguish those dreams on the basis of race, gender, or economic status.  Longing to fly, swim, or ride with creatures of this earth can be interpreted as a desire to live in harmony with nature.  I feel we need to express these concepts as an example for our children and a reminder to ourselves.”
