Seashells on warm sand. A shell is the hard, protective outer layer created by a marine mollusk. It grows attached to them, but they are not alive in themselves, a bit like our hair. After the mollusk dies, they still continue to be very useful for the ecosystem: they provide shelter to other animals and they reduce erosion of the shoreline by adding a barrier between the ocean currents and the sand. Even when they break it's good, because they recycle their calcium carbonate into the water and so they help other mollusks to create more seashells.
Their different colours is caused by the different food they eat. We are what we eat is true also for seashells!
The pillows with this image will create anywhere the perfect marine atmosphere :)
