Abalone Art: “The Gifts of Water and Earth”

It’s believed that the abalone shell (lower left) was first used in P. Bruegel’s 1604 painting: “The Gifts of Water and Earth.” Photo by Willis Photo Lab, Palo Alto 1962. (The original work is part of the Vienna collection in the Kunsthistorisches Museum.)
