A red and yellow gorgon on a brass base.

This gorgonian is the dazzling mixture of red and yellow. This Leptogorgia hebes comes from the Gulf of Mexico.

It grows sheltered from the sun's rays in areas between 10 and 300 meters deep. Where no one sees its vibrant colors. Their color is of course natural.

Attached perpendicular to their support, the colonized polyp branches filter the water with the current to capture the micro-organisms in suspension.

Gorgonians, like corals, are animals living in the form of sessile colonial polyps, organized in a tree structure. Each polyp has 8 tentacles which filter the plankton and consume it. The general structure, a skeleton both flexible and hard, called gorgonine do not grow towards the sun (it does not require light to develop) but perpendicular to the current, so as to filter a maximum of water flow.

A very beautiful decorative object.
