Black Tortoise or Black Turtle is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. Despite its English name, it is usually depicted as a turtle entwined together with a snake. According to Wu Xing, the Taoist five-elemental system, it represents the water-element, the direction north, and the winter season. Thus it is sometimes called the Black Tortoise of the North. It is known as Xuan Wu in Chinese, Hyeonmu in Korean, Genbu in Japanese, and Huyền Vũ in Vietnamese.The
