Shelly’s car

P1030918Actually it belongs to a sculptor named Mike. Saw it parked on Hampshire Ave.

P1030920It’s covered with 400 pounds of seashells. Some of the varieties are: Tiger Clam, Hammerhead Oyster, Florida Sand Dollars, Calico Scallops, Haitian Tree Snail, Paua Abalone, and Star Limpet.


P1030921Some have been cut with a tile saw. They’re glued to the car with waterproof silicone caulking.
