There are over 40,000 different shell species in the world.

Through the times the shell has been frequently used in art, architecture and handicraft.

It has facinated as a symbol or a as mysterious shape.

But the shell is also foodstuff and has been used as a currency in large parts of the world.*

Numerous artists have used the shell as a motive and as source of inspiration.

Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" is just an example.

STUDIO L˛ performs a deep diving into the theme "Shell" during March.

The expo-text (Swedish) is written by Ragnar von Holten, artist and art writer.
