More oldies - clamshell patterns

I lined up these clamshells on the White Rock beach to look at their designs.

All these were within a few metres of each other. 2009

The designs remind me of ancient Chinese brush paintings, such as this:

Painting by Wang Hui, 1662, Metropolitan Museum of Art.

And this one's from 2012, also at White Rock.
