Conus Shell

 

Conus assembled  4 (1)

 

Conus is a large genus of small to large predatory sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs, with the common names of cone snails, cone shells or cones. (Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conus)

They are poisonous so they need careful handling. In fact they are best not handled. They are found mostly in tropical waters near coral reefs.

The shape and patterns inspired me to design and build this paper model. I feel like I am emulating the work of the Designer (but with far inferior intellect and ability).

More images and information on assembly are available in the gallery at http://www.cysarts.com/?page_id=1081Enjoy!

I hope to continue adding posts and pages to the galleries once a month so please look forward to the next one on 3rd October.
