The turtle knot

Week 15 of the knot geometry project. An 8-15 knot to celebrate the 15 subspecies of the Galapagos giant turtle according to Academy herpetologist John Van Denburgh.

Standing on a 8.15 braid-shaped iron work balcony this invertible knot rests on what is an actual giant turtle shell. 900 lb or more, the Galápagos giant tortoises used to populate the entire planet but today can only be found in two small islands, the Galapagos being one of them.
