[About the turtle shell pattern]
Literally a turtle shell pattern. The turtle is a symbol of longevity with the ability to convey God's will in Genbu in the four gods of China (blue dragon, white tiger, Suzaku, and Genbu). Changing the viewpoint of the turtle shell in a vertical pattern in a quarter and six, changing the idea is also the meaning of making it happen in a good direction.
