Pearl of the Orient: The Philippines in a Shell brings together paintings and carvings on mother-of-pearl shells that served as souvenirs of the Philippines during the last part of the 19th century. Because they were abundant in the Philippines, they became perfect keepsakes of the archipelago. Depicted inside these small, portable, and almost indestructible shells are mostly scenes of Philippine daily life - truly the Philippines in a shell.
