Seashells are mostly brought to the beach by the tides and waves, but some people collect them directly from the sea. The full beauty of these amazing sea objects can be seen in various seashell collage posters that illustrate them in various colors and art styles. The beauty and importance of seashells is seen in their historic importance as they were used as money and small tools of various purposes in the past.
An interesting fact is that seashells were used by the Dutch East India Company as money, in the past, and that they were exchanged for goods like spices, gemstone and exotic animals which all were considered extremely valuable in Europe at that time period. Seashell collage paintings may even show the artistic and aesthetic side of these objects that were used as a currency a long time ago.
