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 chrome plinth base. The specimen plate easily removed for study, not fixed in place, the harmonious design balancing the fossil plate securely in place.
