Presents the Four Symbols, benevolent guardians of the cosmos.
Customarily depicted girdled by a snake, the Black Tortoise is guardian of the north, symbolic winter, midnight and the element of water. The combination of a domed shell and flat belly fortuitously represents the vault of the heavens over the earthly plane, whilst its longevity sees it attributed with endurance, stability and wisdom.
