Description / Golden Horseshoe Crab Cushion Cover: Wildlife Photographer of the Year 59

Can you ever have too many cushions? We don’t think so, especially when they’re as unusual as this. On one side of this organic cotton cover is an image of a tri-spine horseshoe crab that was so unexpected it helped Laurent Ballesta win the Adult Grand Title award for Wildlife Photographer of the Year 59.

Marine biologist Laurent was exploring the protected waters of Pangatalan Island in the Philippines when he came across the tri-spine horseshoe crab moving slowly across the mud. Underneath its golden protective carapace hides 12 appendages, while above a trio of juvenile golden trevallies are poised to dart down for edible morsels ploughed up by its passage.

Made from organic cotton, the cover’s other side is an extension of the pattern inspired by this under water image.
