This design will make sense (read that - appeal) to very few...truly a niche market, as the horseshoe crab is very peculiar (some might say ugly) and a common sight in just a few areas of the world. There are four species, only one (Limulus polyphemus) of which is found in North America - along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts from Maine to Mexico. The other three species are found in Southeast Asia. They have survived pretty much unchanged for 445 million years. They molt as they grow, so perfect replicas of themselves, including all their legs and under structure, can be found scattered around the beaches. I have found molts from as small as half an inch in diameter to maybe 10 -12 inches not including the tail. I grew up with these fascinating creatures and vaguely remember I might have done some unkind things to a couple of them. This is my homage to a remarkable survivor who has a special place in my heart. That said - If you live on the east coast of the US, I think this would be totally cool wallpaper!

amy_g says: Lynn, they are fascinating lucky you are to be able to see them in real life! I have only ever been able to view them on sea life documentaries. You have captured them beautifully in this gorgeous and elegant design!
