Snails: slippery little suckers, that most of us consider a nuisance. Most of us, however, have no idea that these little creatures also happen to be surprisingly talented artists!

This set of photographs captures the movements of a humble family of snails over a discarded plastic outdoor table. The aftermath of their slow, slimy journeys has produced a series of astonishingly graphic patterns: nature’s version of modern art!

So… next time you see a snail on the footpath… kneel down, pick it up gently, and place it on a leaf: and be happy in the knowledge that you have just saved an exceptional artist who has no idea of their hidden talent!!

Photographs by Sarah Crowley, an Australian architect and designer. All photographs for sale.
