cedarrrrock: Elephants holding up the world while riding on the back of a sea turtle? Cool! Is that the symbol of an environmental group or perhaps the meme of some native tribe? It seems like I've seen that somewhere before. Did someone knit that for you?

this is from a Stephen King book, turtles are actually in a lot of creation myths, the
