A well defined, distinct fossil specimen in all its anatomical attributes, displaying the remarkable articulation of the extinct fossilised marine echinoderm as if laid down only very recently, not aeons ago. Careful conservation of this genuine and authentic fossil limestone plate has enabled the now natural sculptural element to be highlighted. The whole set into a bronze cradle on a bronze plinth base. The specimen plate easily removed for study, not fixed in place, the harmonious design balancing the fossil plate securely in place.

The stems of some crinoids may have been as much as 50 feet in length on large type Crinoidea. The proximal stem end is attached to the crown aboral cup, the calyx. In the crown or head the arms covered in cilia (feet like feelers), pass food to the mouth situated at the top of the calyx, in this crown the anus is situated next to the mouth, an intestinal tube passes from the mouth in a 'U' shaped tracked to the annulus, the crinoids food passes through this tracked and is digested and exits via the anus opening when the cover over the aboral cup opens to feed.
