aztec shell

When the metro was being installed in Mexico City some years ago a the workmen uncovered an enormous sculpture of a sea shell. This is my interpretation of that shell in a much smaller form, I have made it as a free standing sculpture, 18cm x 42cm x 36cm, and as a corner brick for a wall with a 45 degree bend, 16cm x 30cm x 24cm. They can be cast in white or brown concrete, as a free standing shell or a corner brick.
