The Exhibition of Shellfish @ Guangdong Museum
Submarine, giant clam bracelet, grilled oyster, the shell of abalone or sea-ear, Squidward Tentacles, giant squid, snail, slug... All theses things seem to be unrelated, but there is a secret bond linking them together. Why do the Chinese Chinese characters about money all have the radical of bei (贝)? Shellfishes, master architect in the animal kingdom, can build strong and colorful shell houses, but why are they called mollusc? The Exhibition of Shellfish presents over 1000 shellfish specimens and cultural relics to answer all these questions.
