An exceptional example of the artist's work in acrylic, Spiritual Turtle of 2015 was executed during the height of Rossi’s painting career. It signifies good health, long life and Mother Earth. A detailed depiction of the sacred figure in Native American symbolism, the present work reveals her masterful handling of color and space together with her celebrated dedication to rendering her Native American subject in a decidedly symbolic manner.
