Duria Antiquior, a more ancient Dorset, was the first pictorial representation of a scene of prehistoric life based on evidence from fossil reconstructions, a genre now known as paleoart. The first version was a watercolour painted in 1830 by the English geologist Henry De la Beche based on fossils found in Lyme Regis mostly by the professional fossil collector Mary Anning. De la Beche had the professional artist Georg Scharf produce lithographic prints based on the painting, which he sold to friends to raise money for Anning's benefit.
A paper image is affixed and finished to steel with a product that creates an oil painting like look and texture and renders the image UV protected and water resistant. Steel is lightweight, comfortable and sturdy. Necklaces are finished with copper colored chain with a lobster claw clasp, all lead and nickel free. If you select a pendant, they come on 18 inches of satin cord finished with a lobster claw clasp.
Questions are welcome.
