Small Conch Shell Object
The Right Turning Conch symbolizes the fame of the Buddha's teachings, which spread in all directions like the sounds of the conch trumpet. As one of the oldest ritual objects, it stood for femininity and as a musical offering. This Whelk shell is another kind of large mollusk that we have electroformed in fine silver, capturing incredible detail from the spire, and over whole body, to the end of the stalk. The aperture and inner lip of the Whelk is left untouched, exposing the natural enamel that spirals into the heart of this delicate yet powerful shell. They are mystical and ritual, engaging all the senses with a childlike whimsy. We honor the object, while preserving the wonder.
