One of her beautiful collections is the ‘The daughters of the Sea’, as the shellfish were characterized from the Mesozoic Era, they firstly appeared hundreds of years ago in the Peruvian Andes, but are an endangered species due to the extensive water pollution. Their unique shape, color and size, make them priceless while their value in early times was considered higher than gold. The harvest is done by specialized divers, as they attached to rocks of the seabed and are very sensitive to changes in temperature and salinity of the water. One can discover their age by examining the lines on the shell.
The shells photographed were extracted from the bottom of Argolis in Peloponnese.
