Fijian Fishing Goddess
The mother of all turtles
On the island of Kanava at Tavuki Bay women possess the secret of singing to call her. Only when she appears is it permitted for fishermen to catch turtles, who will almost surrender to the chanting.
This mysterious ritual has been photographed and the ‘Mother’ is clearly a very large turtle indeed.
