Sea Cells


I realised I haven't updated by blog for quite a while.  Been tied up with stuffs as usual.  Here's one taken a while back.

Summertime, the blue water swells,
The fish are jumping to greet and farewell,
We all admire the aquatic life very well,
In fact, these are not real sea shells,
They are merely look alike marine life minus the water,
Simply made from thread and dryer lint.

Hey there, Ai Shiang!

Presumed this is a picture from Australia? Part of the Great Ocean Road?

HappySurfer said...

Interesting. Is this part of the art scene along the coast or just some debris washed ashore?

Mei Teng said...

The shells are works of art? Sculptures by the sea collection? Nice.

Sea shells or sea cells? But they look nice! : )

ShingoT,
It's taken in Sydney, Bondi Beach. Not the Great Ocean Road, I've not been there yet :o)

Happysurfer,
It's part of the Sculptures by the Sea exhibition.

MeiTeng,
You got it right. It's the Sculptures by the Sea collection. Good memory :o)

Foongpc,
The artist named it Sea Cells rather than Sea Shells.

Guess you take the brave steps climbing down the rock to take the shoot :) The painted sea shells look beautiful and big...I'm curios they look big because of the close-up shoot or they are indeed big?

Tekkaus said...

What are those? Sea cells? Someone actually painted them? Or those are naturally occurring stones? :p

Ai Shiang said...

Ben, Tekkaus,
They are not painted though. They are made from thread and dryer lint, I'm guessing inside is cotton. They are soft to touch and quite big, at least bigger than my face LOL!

Ayie said...

How are you?

Ai Shiang said...

It feels like you're wandering under the sea bed.

Rafael,
A bit of colours around the rocks make thing more interesting too.

Lily,
Haha! Thanks heaps!

Ayie,
I trust your boy is definitely keeping you occupied :o). I'm busy with work the usual.
