The turtle (kame) is said to live 10,000 years and is one of the four celestial guardians (dragon, phoenix, tiger and turtle) of Chinese mythology. The wavy lines behind their shells represent sea weed that has attached over millennia. Supposedly it takes five thousand years to accumulate the amount of sea weed worn by each of the sea turtles.
