50 Million Year Old Eocene Era Fossil Fish Mural in Stone, from Wyoming

$7,200

About

This elegant irregularly shaped fossil mural features a Cockerellites liops (formerly known as Priscacara), two Diplomystus dentatus, and a Knightia eocaena, all of which are Eocene era fossils dating back about 50 million years. These ancient fish are forever preserved in a textured matrix of natural, fossil-bearing limestone. This exquisite piece of natural history makes an incredible statement and works beautifully with design styles ranging from traditional to modern. The mural measures approximately 3 feet x 2 feet. It is fully backed with wood, and the irregular outline highlights the natural concept of this work of art. The mural has a built-in French cleat, which allows for an easy installation.

Fifty million years ago, in southwestern Wyoming, a tropical freshwater lake teemed with life. Turtles, fish, crocodiles, and lush vegetation were all once well-established inhabitants of the region. Today, the lake has transformed into an incredibly rich cache of fossils where the past is forever preserved in layers of natural limestone. This is famously known as the Green River Formation. Professional fossil hunters scout out and excavate fossils from Green River Stone Company's private quarry, which are brought to the GRSC lab in northern Utah. Leading experts in fossil preparation perform the painstaking task of revealing the finely preserved details of every specimen. All work adheres to the strict standards of the American Association of Applied Paleontological Science, as is attested to in each work of art's unique Certificate of Authenticity. Green River Stone Company has supplied exquisite examples of natural art and outstanding specimens to world-class museums, universities, collectors, interior designers, and art lovers. The collection of natural history presented here highlights important one-of-a-kind specimens as well as attainable works of natural art.
