This black and white engraving of a scallop shell was originally published in 1757 by German engraver Georg Wolfgang Knorr. The artist’s original work not only served as an accurate depiction of the shell it was based on, but the engraving’s incredible detail also serves to make this piece of coastal wall decor a highlight of any room it is placed in. The ridges and lines created by the engraving process mimic the textured surface of the seashell, giving this luxurious print a new level of depth. Our artists were inspired by the natural beauty of the shell’s design and enhanced the original image by making this piece black and white to highlight the original artist’s detailed line work. The level of detail presented in this piece of wall art, in combination with the lack of color, makes it an easy addition to any bedroom, study, or office space.
