Large Fossil Fish Mural - 60 x 39 inches

This is a breathtaking mural with nine beautiful prehistoric fish of different species: Phareodus (1)Diplomystus (3), Knightia (2), and Cockerellites (3). The shale slab is gorgeously textured  on light sandy coloured matrix. 

These fish swam in ancient Eocene lakes in Wyoming, USA, 50 million years ago. They were discovered in the famous Green River Formation, which is known to produce some of the most spectacular vertebrate fossils. Interestingly, Diplomystus have even been found with small fish (like Knightia, or even smaller Diplomystus!) preserved in their mouths.

It took many hours of painstaking work by a professional fossil preparator to reveal the fine bones of these fossil fish from the stone. Surely, it was worth the effort to bring these ancient fish to life!
