Nautilus shell. The chambered nautilus lives in tropical waters extending from the Andaman Sea east to Fiji and from southern Japan to the Great Barrier Reef. This animal usually lives where the slopes of coral reefs descend into deep waters. During the day, it resides in dark cool waters at depths from 900-2,000 feet and ascends to shallower waters (300-500 feet deep) at night to feed.  They locate food by smelling the ocean currents for traces of dead or dying prey. --National Zoo

Nice that shells are used in the lamps. Kind of brings the sea indoors. I wonder if we could use that thematically in the apartment. walzerjahrhundert: Gustav Gurschner, Art Nouveau bronze mermaid lamp with nautilus shell shade, circa 1899

Nautilus. Ever growing, ever changing. Once it grows a new, larger chamber it cannot go back to the previous ones; they no longer fit. It has no choice but to move on. Still, the old chambers are still part of them. Just as we are forced to move through life. Our past still stands and affects who we are today.

Nautiluses are the sole living cephalopods whose bony body structure is externalized as a shell. The animal can withdraw completely into its shell and close the opening with a leathery hood formed from two specially folded tentacles.
