Womanhood, divination, abundance and protection are embedded in the cowry shell’s symbolic meaning. On display in the For Cowried Girls exhibition you will view masks and African abstract figures by ceramist Ella Maria Ray, all of which are adorned in some way with cowry shells.

All the artwork emerged from the inferno-like heat of the kiln cracked, over-fired or bearing some flaw, and yet, like the cowry shell, exudes a revelatory beauty.
