Vintage 1930's: Shell Art Shadow Box

Where does one begin with a time staking, beautiful, timeless piece of art like this? Designed by Mother Nature and Man together resulting in a breath taking natural sculpture. All the way from Manila ( Philippines) , in the 1930's to today with only one petal to drop, which only adds to the realistic process of the true cycle of life, yet could be re glued if desired.The frame measures 23 1/2" x 18" with a depth of 3". Beginning with a natural Nautilus shell serving as a vase to hold a bouquet of white oval Fox shells,hand carved Frog shells( I think) , pucha shells all tied together with Zebra branch coral. As shown in photo there are a few spots of dried glue residue but is barely visible to the naked eye. A unique piece of art to bring a touch of nature into any room.
