The marine creature is not particularly impressive, at least not for its position in the food chain or for its abilities and lifestyle. It is the sheer beauty of its shell, which has been celebrated in numerous Nautilus paintings, including some authored by famous artists that lived centuries ago. One can only imagine the excitement of discovering such a shell on the beach, without knowing a great deal about its origin and the creature that it belongs to. CanvasGalleryArt.com has a couple of Nautilus posters featuring the live creature in its natural habitat, but even more images focusing exclusively on the shell.
There are two things that tend to draw the attention of those who admire Nautilus prints, with the color and shape of the shell standing out. Light colors abound and this is why these images brilliantly match any interior regardless of existing decor, so no changes are required. More impressive is the spiral that seems to be never ending and which has always fascinated people when taking the shells into their palms.
