Product Description
~Aspidonia Trilobite Fossil pendant ~ 48mm tall. Professor Ernst Haeckel (pronounced Heckel) was a German biologist, philosopher & artist. A contemporary of Darwin, he held similar theoretical views on evolution & natural selection (he also coined the term 'ecology' amongst many other things). His masterwork 'Kunstformen der Natur' (Art Forms of Nature), a collection of 100 plates - meticulous drawings of life forms - was published in 1904. A pdf file is available here http://caliban.mpiz-koeln.mpg.de/haeckel/kunstformen/natur.html, & is in the public domain. It is thought to be influential on the Art Nouveau movement & remains an iconic work of 'science/art fusion'.

This 48mm high (1.9 inch) pendant is based on one of those detailed, but somewhat idealised renderings, at the center left of plate 47. Aspidonia is a genus of ancient trilobite - similar to modern horseshoe crabs. The pendant would look great printed in antique bronze glossy, gold plated brass, gold plated glossy & antique bronze matte but would also suit silver glossy, polished alumide(?) Unfortunately stainless steel is not an option as the printing process will not hold the detail in the 3D model at this pendant scale. The latin binomial name for this creature is Acidaspis dufresnoyi. The model was created using 'box' polygon-modeling techniques utilising 2D drawings or images only as reference. Designed by Orbyt in West Auckland, New Zealand - 3D models inspired by art forms in nature are available through the orbytnz Shapeways shop...

Please note that as the 3D printed pendant is delivered directly from Shapeways it does not include a jump-ring, or a cord or chain - it's just the pendant by itself. ~ right click in the youtube window & click 'loop' ~
