Sand and Shells
The opening case for the exhibit is the only case you see from the main lobby of the museum. I knew I wanted the case to call you, to make you feel drawn towards something. I used the exhibit icon, a Brazilian portrait of The Goddess of the Sea, Yemaya, Iemanja, as the back drop. I then filled the case with white sand, and covered the sand in sea shells and small statues of some of the principle saints. In this picture you see Our Lady of Regla perched on a large sea shell. The case was also filled with white flowers.
