Product Description

Half a billion years ago, armored marine animals patrolled the sea floor. Fossilized, their elegantly curved, segmented shells have come to symbolize life on early Earth.

Unlike its brittle true-fossil forerunners, this Ceraurus trilobite shell sits solidly in your hand, spiny yet eager to be handled. By faithfully representing the organismal form, from segment numbers and structure to furrows and spines, the piece invites the viewer to look much closer, and rewards the effort. Its back gently curls unlike flattened fossils, curving into three dimensions as in life.

As featured on Scientific AmericanNerdistGizmodoScience et AvenirThe Earth Storymental_floss, BoingBoing, and elsewhere. The model here is the shell only. Contact me directly if you are seeking the full reconstructed trilobite, with legs and antennae, seen around the web. The reconstructions begin with 3D prints cast in metal, polished solid bronze or silver, and are assembled, patinated, and finished by hand.
