50 Million Year Old Eocene Era Fossil Palm Frond Pair in Stone, from Wyoming

$175,000per set

About

This diptych mural features two halves of a gorgeously preserved palm frond. This is an Eocene era fossil dating back about 50 million years. Plant life often produces some of the most aesthetic Green River Formation fossils we have prepared over the years; due to the delicate nature of the material, fine and large examples of plant life are exceptionally rare. The mural measures approximately 6.4 feet high by 7.25 feet across (that includes a few inches between the two panels). Both panels are fully backed with wood and include a handmade custom Wenge wood frame which compliments the fossil color beautifully. Each panel has a built-in French cleat. -Each panel size: 87" H x 42" W x 2.5" D (total hanging width approximately 87" wide) -Total Mural weight: 385 lbs -Transports in a custom crate -Includes a Green River Stone Company "Certificate of Authenticity" -Fossil Content: (1) palm frond split in two halves (measuring 77") About this artwork Fifty million years ago, in southwestern Wyoming, a tropical freshwater lake teemed with life—turtles, fish, crocodiles, and plants. Today the petrified lake has transformed into a stunning quarry of fossils, embedding the past into layers of stone. This is famously known as the Green River Formation. The beautifully preserved fossils are meticulously excavated from our private quarry and then prepared by our leading experts in fossil preparation and preservation. 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". We have supplied stunning examples of our natural art to world-class museums, collectors, interior designers, and art lovers. Our collection highlights important one-of-a-kind pieces as well as affordable works of natural art.
