The inspiration for this project comes from Phylum porifera, which are simple multicellular underwater organisms known as sea sponges.  These sponges are placed into three taxonomic classes based on the chemical composition of their skeletons, being either calcium carbonate, silicon dioxide or protein fibers.

These three images are of the silicious structure of the glass sponge.

These two images are of the spongin protein structure.
