The term sand dollar (or sea cookie orsnapper biscuit in New Zealand, or pansy shell in South Africa) refers to species of extremely flattened, burrowing sea urchinsbelonging to the order Clypeasteroida. Some species within the order, not quite as flat, are known as sea biscuits. Related animals include the sea urchins, sea cucumbers and starfish.
The center of the legendary holy shell forms the five pointed star of Bethlehem.
The five slits represent the five wounds in Christ's body.
Inside are found five little doves of peace.
