Manatees are often called 'sea cows', for good reason. Like cows on land, they spend most of their time grazing; they eat the plants, grasses and algae that grow at the bottom of the shallow waters where they like to live.
And they spend about half their day sleeping, swimming to the surface every so often to replenish their air supply, which is what the manatees in these earrings seem to be doing.
These earrings have a nice rounded shape, like the mammals, with protruding fins and detailed facial features that are highlighted with an antique effect.
