I travel to India for inspiration. The etchings on this brass conch shell is something to behold. It was made in Muradaba (Northern India) and get this when placed to your ear you can hear “the ocean”.

Travel tip –
Forget about joining the hordes of tourists at the chateau. I recommend visiting the adjacent grounds and the royal stables.
