The peacock, owl, phoenix and vulture shells measure roughly 7-8 in. in length, making them to be a larger size of Abalone. The raven shell is between 5-6in, which is standard Abalone shell size for smudging purposes. The crow shell is painted on a 6-7in in length conch.
All are hand painted, using a variety of media such as acrylics, gouache and gel-pen inks. They are then sprayed with Krylon’s Preserve It! Gloss. Perfect for home decor or to add to your Altar as a unique piece.
The Phoenix shell is a re-purposed antique jewellery dish with the original lacquer on the outer shell and has the original stands attached. It lays on a slight angle. This also applies to the raven shell, with its own adhered stands.
As of now, this is all I have in terms of abalone shells. I am currently in the process of finding a decent supplier so I can paint more beings in them for any and all those interested in having a piece of their own. Prices vary depending on the shell size, complexity of the piece, materials used and how much time was spent from start to finish.
** Shipping is determined by destination. As I am from Canada, I use Canada Post to do most of my mailing. Depending on the weight of the shell(s) and where the buyer is located, it will vary on how much the shipping cost and if I need to express post or even add insurance (if buyer desires, but this will also be added to the cost of shell, the shipping fees and so on)
If interested, please send me a message to my Tumblr with a postal code so I can determine shipping costs with you. Thank you!
is a very large owl, documented as the world’s largest species of owl by length. It is distributed across the Northern Hemisphere. In some areas it is also called Phantom of the North, cinereous owl, spectral owl, Lapland owl, spruce owl, bearded owl, and sooty owl.
