This print is about the age old practice of hunting turtles especially at full moon time. It shows the moon and the moon's rays shining on a rock. After being caught, turtles are placed upside down on their backs on the beach. Rocks from the mountain are placed on their chests. These rocks protect the turtle meat and fat from the moon rays until the next day. The turtles are then butchered.
