Four Spirit 2 - Black Tortoise
BLACK TORTOISE: NORTH - WINTER - WATER
After a successful run of the original Four Spirit geocoin set, sssooocool announced a follow set in coloured clay. They're nice, but I like the original set much better. Check out the gallery below to get an idea of what went into their production.
The geocoins' icon is the Chinese character for "spirit" and is made up of three other characters: The upper part is the word "rain", the bottom is "sorcerer" and the middle part means "three mouths."
The four animals in the set each represent a direction, a season, and an element. On the reverse the animals' names appear in Chinese, with the top character being the colour and the bottom the animal name.
I believe this is supposed to be a five geocoin set, and I am missing East, somehow. Perhaps it will turn up in the piles of stuff around here one day.
