This assemblage or composition of seashells within a cherry wood box that is handmade, is a work of art and artistry. Within the wood frame is an altered printer's type box or letterpress type tray. Within the box is a collection of colorful seashells, many of which are seen in relief. These shells are too big around for inclusion of a shadow box this deep. The art of cutting, grinding, and for thin shells, raising forward, is demonstrated.

Between the inner box and frame, wampum has been inlaid and other shells are surface mounted.

The framed size is about 25" x 29". It is a heavy piece. It comes wired. Hanging requires adequate support. A heavy duty picture hook fastened to a wood stud is suggested. A #10 wood screw may be used. Hollow wall anchors may be used if installed properly.

The crating and shipping price is an estimate. Actually shipping cost will be determined by your zip code.
