Inward – an abstraction of a shell

The spiral is a powerful symbol in art. It creates a feeling of motion that draws you in, focuses your attention, and calms your mind. In this photograph, the spiraling motion of the shell contrasts with its rough, cracked surface. As your eye moves towards the center, it catches on the broken edges, encouraging you to slow down and fully experience the shell’s colors, details, and textures.
