Day 51 ~ Wallpaper-a-day “Margate Fin”

Margate Fin

This pattern, created from the fin of a margate, is part of our biophilia collection. Biophilia is a term coined by E.O. Wilson, referring to “an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems.”

We think it harkens to the gothic cathedral ceilings as seen in the book “Heavenly Vaults”.

Here is a detail of the fin, showing scales through a translucent layer.
