Yoka Star Turban

Image of Yoka Star Turban

This amazing creature is Guildfordia yoka, or Yoka star turban — one of the most distinctive seashells, with a flattened shell that bears extremely long spines radiating outward. Guildfordia yoka lives in calm, deep waters of the Japonic region.

It is drawn at its actual size — approximately 12,5 cm in diameter — using watercolors and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

Prints available in A4 and A5.
