Nautilus print

Nautilus print
Originally uploaded by the.minouette
The nautilus is a very unusual looking creature; a cephalopod like the squid or octopus, which grows its own shell. They are known as "living fossils," having survived relatively unchanged for millions of years.

This is one of a series of 15 prints in a variable colour mix (somewhere between sand and burgundy and violet) on creamy Japanese kozo (or mulberry) paper.
