Welcome to the Museum of Snails in Art

This virtual museum will show you snails and slugs not only on paintings,drawings and prints,but also on gravestones and mosaics. The earliest art dates back to circa 4 AD and shows snails in a mosaic. Sometimes snails play a leading role in a painting or a drawing while in other art they are merely supporting actors.There is a separate section of natural history prints most of them 19th century quality pieces.
