Sometimes the practical thing just won’t do, and that is how Aurelia ended up with her stunning Jellyfish Cruiser. In her search for a little something to knock around her undersea town in, she stumbled upon the J3000 Series Sychphozoa Turbo Cabriolet and felt her heart turn to jelly. The test drive did Aurelia in – the elegant design, the handcrafted etching on the nautilus shell body, the feeling of tentacles blowing through her hair when she really opened up the 800 seahorse power engine – complete bliss! She had to have it. Sure, she’s had to put in a little more overtime but it’s been worth every sand dollar, and the fish heads that turn as she zips by in the Jellyfish Cruiser make her smile each and every day. I hope she does the same for you.

Signed & dated, this 8” x 10” original collage depicting Aurelia, her Jellyfish cruiser and her starfish stowaway has been constructed of handcut vintage images upon a handpainted watercolor background and features real shell accents on Aurelia’s sectioned nautilus hat. This piece is just luminous and is sure to add unspeakable panache and a sense of serenity to your study, bedroom or powder room.
