The Tortoise and the Hare Wax Seal Necklace - Slow & Steady Wins the Race

Italian wax seal necklace based on the Aesop fable "The tortoise and the Hare" - Slow and steady wins the race.

This charm depicts the famous Aesop fable of the Tortoise and the Hare where we learn that "Slow and steady wins the race", anything can be accomplished with hard work and determination. Being an over confident braggart, the hare in this case, will get you nowhere fast.

A reminder that hard work and determination always pay off.

Details

There once lived in a forest a hare and a tortoise. They were good friends. But the hare always boasted that he was able to move faster than the slow tortoise.

At this, the tortoise felt humiliated in front of other animals. So one day he challenged the hare in a race. The fox was made the supervisor, and the lion the judge.I There was a starting point and a point marking the end, fixed by the fox.

Both the competitors started their race at the same time. The hare ran faster. He was naturally much ahead of his slow friend.

Now on his way the hare wanted to take a little rest under a tree, because he was sure of his win. And he soon felt asleep.

On the other hand, the tortoise moved slowly but steadily without any rest. He reached the destination before the hare arrived. When the hare woke up, he found that he was defeated by his tortoise friend.

This was just the most perfect gift. It is beautifully made and quite a pleasing weight, so even though it is quite dainty, it does not feel 'cheap'. It was packaged absolutely beautifully, my daughter was so excited to give it to her best friend on their graduation. She loves it and has not taken it off since receiving it.
