DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Maddalena requested the design of a tree representing her family and a turtle has been integrated into it.
The tree symbolizes continuity, life that goes on from fathers to children, family roots, and the turtle is a symbol for family too.

The turtle shapes the body of the tree and its shell is made out of a double spiral, symbolizing union and eternity, which joins the two front flippers where we placed the letters N and A for her daughters and their union, shared by the parents whose initials shape the back flippers of the turtle (closer to the roots): M and A.

Leaves symbolize life.
