What an unusual thing, Anne. Thank-you for showing. :)  :-*
I think it works rather well. I've never seen one before.
It's kind of like a mushroom in construction, but with the outer top casing all fishified.  ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Evolution inspired by the Mdina seahorse?  ;D

I thought fish came before horses. At least they did, according to Darwin. ;D 
Perhaps Maltese glass knows history better than the percieved wisdom available to the rest of us, though?  ;)
