Island City Harbor
The Wave Shell
The Great Wave of Kanawaga, also known as The Great Wave, is one of the most famous examples of Japanese art in the world. The wave is about to strike the boats as if it were an enormous monster, one which seems to symbolise the irresistible force of nature and the weakness of human beings.
From the Artist: We get our shells from local fisherman here at the Jersey Shore , who collect them after they are done with what they need and we pick them up every week. We then get them home, clean them, dry them and sort through which ones we will be able to use. The ones that I can't use, they will be ground up for our garden in the backyard. I then decorate them with recycled napkins. Then they are glazed and painted with gold liquid on the edges.
Shells will NOT be the same size or shape as the one listed but very close. They will all be different that's what makes them so special. Shell sizes will vary. they will be from 2 1/2- 5 inches.
