Broken Sea Shells Conversing
As a child I used to collect only perfect sea-shells, until one day a poet friend of the family pointed out that sometimes the broken shapes could be just as interesting, and might lend themselves more to the imagination - in his case the telling of a story about a princess who lived in a ruined castle.
These shells seem to me like two long-beaked creatures having a conversation, with perhaps a little one hatching out below!

Available as a limited edition giclee print.
