A symbolic composition depicting beautiful Paper Nautilus shell with some objects from my collection. The shell itself has such an intricate and fragile structure and also transparency that I wanted to depict. Also I wanted to create a sense of story or message hidden in the picture. The interpretation is up to the viewer as it could be read differently, for example the blue ribbon can symbolize a human lifeline or just an ocean wave on the edge of the beach. It also adds a hint of colour to an otherwise quite monochromatic drawing

The creation of this drawing was featured in 2013 July issue of Australian Artist magazine.
