The Calappa (smooth box crab) gets it’s name from it’s distinctly bulky shell, which is shaped like a box. The Calappa’s claws are usually placed near their face and it makes them look shy and timid which is why they are also called shy crabs, mask crabs, and shame faced crabs.
When danger rears its ugly head, the Calappa is known for sticking close by its partner. The mated pair will cling together as they try to escape rather than scatter and lose each other. It’s need to guard and protect it’s loved ones is one that we can understand and that makes the crab so much more endearing to us.
While this adorable creature is the perfect decorative piece to have in your life, decorative isn’t all it is. We wanted our product to be as useful as it is beautiful so we’ve built this piece with storage in mind. Keep your change or special items safe within its rounded brass body.
The entire back, pincers and legs of this piece are well-defined, but soft to the touch and not at all prickly, making them feel great in the hand. The front of the crab shell has a built-in magnet that can be used to help keep your items safely tucked inside. But without doubt, the highlight of the entire work is the depiction of Calappa's eyes. The size, detail and prominent angle of the eyes are just right, making the whole piece come to life. This is definitely the perfect gift for your loved ones or yourself!
