Description

Ocean currents and wind-swept waves often bring sea life to shore. A common site along Newfoundland beachheads are shells, sea urchins, kelp and driftwood. The broken urchin in this painting reveals the center of the crushed animal, a chewing mechanism called Aristotle’s Lantern.

The history behind this painting....I spent the summer in Bonne Bay at the Bonne Bay Research Lab as part of my coursework (I have a Master of Biology) and came upon the broken urchin shell. I have always been fascinated by details, so the broken shell of the Green Sea Urchin, displaying the 5 calcareous feeding apparatus known as Aristotle's Lantern, next to the seaweed on the rocky beach, was right up my alley!

Aristotle’s Lantern is a framed original painting.
