The Heart for Art Turtle Logo
Turtles are frequently depicted in popular culture as easygoing, patient, and wise creatures. Due to their long lifespan, slow movement, sturdiness, and wrinkled appearance, they are an emblem of longevity and stability in many cultures around the world. Turtles are regularly incorporated into human culture, with painters, photographers, poets, songwriters, and sculptors using them as subjects. They have an important role in mythologies around the world, and are often implicated in creation myths regarding the origin of the Earth.
In Hindu mythology the world is thought to rest on the backs of four elephants who stand on the shell of a turtle. In Hinduism, Akupara is a tortoise who carries the world on his back, upholding the Earth and the sea.
One of the Avatars of Vishnu is the giant turtle Kurma.
The Heart for Art logo represents the wisdom, longevity and ingenuity of Indian Handicraft traditions and the patience required to bring back its past glory!!

We conduct these workshops in major cities like Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and more. These workshops not only help the urban crowd to get reintroduced to the rich heritage but give the artisans exposure and perspective of the urban market.
