Artist's Description

Three sand dollars I found on a beach in Maine, blended with my own textures.

Sand dollars are from the class of marine animals known as Echinoids, spiny skinned creatures. Their relations include the sea lily, the sea cucumber, the star fish and the sea urchin. When alive, the local species is outfitted in a maroon-colored suit of moveable spines that encompass the entire shell. Like its close relative the sea urchin, the sand dollar has five sets of pores arranged petal pattern. The pores are used to move sea water into its internal water-vascular system which allows for movement. Since the sand dollar lives in sandy locations, anyone who would like to collect their shells should comb beaches as the tide recedes.
