Orca - Killer Whale - Spiritkeepers Shell

An actual Pacific ocean oyster shell hand painted with a playful orca, also known as killer whale and the wolf of the sea! This Spiritkeepers™ hangs on the wall by a hand shaped coated copper wire. Brass table top display stand available on request. See home site for purchase details. 5½ " long x 3" high(back of shell)

It was a wonderful day when I gathered this oyster shell. I had taken our two dogs, the girls, for a walk to the bay. We lived in coastal Washington State and the ocean sky had painted a brilliant scarlet scene for us to walk under. Many of the small buildings scattered along the steep banks are painted blue. I imagine that's due to our forefathers instinctual knowledge of color theory. Maybe that's true, because the shadows on those buildings glow thalo blue mysteries under the orange flamed sky. Even on the most oppressively overcast of days Gray's Harbor stood alive with color contrast. Rich, earthy browns and royal reds of moist wood on a pallet next to plants that scream yellow from the water hanging in the air filled my eyes -- so bright and so dark at the same time!
