Chambered Nautilus Bench


Chambered Nautilus Bench

Carolyn Reynolds, 2001

A legend is associated with this piece and that says, “Triton rode this shell to the surface of the ocean to enchant the sea nymph. Her love inspired Triton to make the Nautilus the most beautiful shell in the ocean; ever since the Nautilus has been honored as the pearly ocean chauffeur. Touch the pearl in the center of the shell and your travel wish will come true.”
