Image an underground cavern, or "grotto", filled with 4.6 MILLION shells decorating over 70sft of walls....what a wonder. I recently discovered this mystery and I am now obsessed with thoughts of going there. The Shell Grotto was discovered, by accident, in 1835 and to this day no one truly knows what it's purpose was. Was it a pagan temple? A secret cult? Seriously NO ONE knows! Isn't that fascinating? You can wander the winding passageways covered in abstract geometric patterns and let your imagination soar with limitless possibilities. I would love to take Claire there one day.
The first thing I thought of when I first saw these images was the intrique patterned mosaics one finds inside of a Mosque.
What do you think is behind this great and beautiful mystery?
