In readiness for an exhibition at a Tattoo Convention to which I was invited this coming October, I have been making some oddities to form part of a Cabinet of Curiosities, to show alongside my Steampunk items.

I have always liked large sea shells, but have never been sure if they could be utilised as part of something else.

I would really like to build a Nautilus Submarine from a real Nautilus shell, but in the meantime, here is the 'Evil little Shellfish' an odd marriage of a dolls head, a Turbo shell and a rubber spider!,  sort of a nasty little Hermit crab if you will....

That is so weird, in a good-creepy kind of way, and very evil!

It seems to me you have found a particularly nasty specimen of Heikegani

Great stuff. I have a project underway that is repurposing some shells myself... no quite as creepy, but in a similar mould. I love the way you have it mounted.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
Very nice, indeed. This puts me in mind of the works of Heironymus Bosch.
