Peter was inspired by some snapping turtles at a marina in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, while attending the Clair de Lune Convention in 2000.   He was about to hold a carving demonstration at the convention.
The turtles on "Slow Dance" are dressed in Roaring Twenties style to commemorate the convention's 1920s theme & swing dance competition.
The lady turtle looks elegant in her plume and feather boa, but her long necklace seems to have come undone, and pearls roll underfoot.  
The gentleman turtle sloshes his drink on his dance partner while Peter's signature mouse hides out in a hole in his hat.
