FROM A TRAGIC LOVE STORY TO A UNIQUE TRADITION

ITS AN AGE OLD TALE, TWO YOUNG SHRIMP (A MALE AND A FEMALE) SWIM INTO THE LACELIKE FRAMEWORK OF THE SPONGE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO RENDEZVOUS (AND FEED ON MICRO-ORGANISMS).  WHILE THEY ARE HIDING IN THEIR SECRET PLACE THE SPONGE GROWS AND THE OPENING AT THE TOP OF THE CYLINDER CLOSES CREATING A TRAP.  NOW, THE SHRIMP GROW TOO AND GET TOO LARGE TO SWIM THROUGH THE HOLES AND BECOME TRAPPED.  WITH TIME THEY WELCOME THE BABY SHRIMP AND SOON THE BABIES SWIM AWAY TO FIND THEIR OWN MATES AND SPONGES.  TRAPPED IN THEIR LITTLE JAIL, THE PAIR DIE TOGETHER INSIDE THE SPONGE.  BECAUSE OF THIS TRAGIC TALE, IT HAS BECOME A TRADITION IN THE JAPANESE CULTURE TO GIVE A GLASS SPONGE TO BRIDE AND GROOM FOR A WEDDING PRESENT TO SYMBOLIZE THEIR LIFE-LONG COMMITMENT.

THESE DELICATE SPONGES ARE PERFECT FOR FRAMING IN A SHADOW BOX FRAME.  THIS IS AN ITEM THAT COULD BE DISPLAYED IN ALL KINDS OF CREATIVE WAYS OR ADDED TO YOUR CRAFTY SHELL CREATIONS.
