Adapted posthumously from the illustration for the 1958 book, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories. On the Island of Sala-ma-Sond, Yertle was king of the pond, but he wanted to be master of all he surveyed – and so he built his Turtle Tower on the backs of his people.  This story was fashioned after WWII’s most infamous dictator.  But in the end, “all the turtles are free as turtles and, maybe all creatures should be.” This lithograph on archival paper measures 12.5" wide by 8.5" tall. Only 2500 were released in this 2001 limited edition.
