Rococo is a combination of the French words rocaille (rock) and coquille (shell). Seashells have long been a source of beauty and an example of grace over time and were especially representative of such in eighteenth-century Rococo design. During this period, the natural shell curve became a decorative and opulent fixture. The seashell was depicted as the vessel of beauty, rebirth, love, and godly attributes on earth. What could be better than hands graced with such
attributes?
