|This carving is another good example of beauty in simplicity. When Gerry created this design, we were developing a whole series of ocean carvings. Nothing is more humbling to an artist than doing close observation of natural objects. Anything we do will always pale in comparison to what nature achieves.|
The backside of the scallop shell is hollowed out and sanded to a smooth finish. As with many of our carvings, this is to achieve a relaxing feel when handled.
