No, in some cultures tortoise symbolize wisdom but there are lots of different comments about the painting. For example, another one is about patience training. There is also a French drawing called [“Charmeur de tortues”](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/93/Charmeur_de_tortues.jpg/595px-Charmeur_de_tortues.jpg) same name with Osman Hamdi Bey’s. In the drawing there is a man training tortoises with a small drum, in Turkish version the man is training tortoises with reed flute.
