While shells are incorporated into art in many ways, these shell sculptures are one-of-a-kind.

It is clear that the London-based artist Rowan Mersh prides himself on an astute attention to detail when it comes to creating his intricate work. The artist made these large shell sculptures by collecting thousands of different shells and arranging them into designs that eventually form a large "canvas" that can be hung up on walls. The 3D aspect of this art gives it a unique texture and the artist formed patterns with shells that make up unique shapes -- with some of his work eventually taking the shape of ovals or circles.

These unique pieces of art showcase shell-themed techniques in a more sophisticated way.
