Fossils By: Sunstar

Artist's Note

Yet another sketch attempt...

I seem to like dead things, first sheep's skull and now my little fossil collection. Actually I have quite a few fossils kicking around, including the remains of a 486 computer.

The long fossil at the back of the lot I found at Etobicoke creek when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I found many there actually, one rock is particularly spectacular as it has hundreds of fossils in it, snails Nautiloids and more.

The fossil in the back is a Nautiloid. It is an early form of squid-like creature that resided in an oblong or a spiral shell. This fellow was in an oblong shell and is broken into three pieces, with the tip of it being encased in rock. The weird bug-like creature is my Trilobite. And the three shells are known as Brachiopods. In front of the Brachiopods are two little sharks teeth.

Please link to me if you choose to take this image thanks.
