350 Million Year Old Sculpture

Devonian Fossil Sculpture

Devonian Fossil Sculpture

Bill Knight has created a wonderful sculpture for us. By cutting, grinding and polishing he has created a gorgeous sculpture. It stands about 19-inches tall and must weigh over 50-pounds.

This sculpture started a couple of years ago when he collected a few rocks in the creek here at the Prairie Garden Trust.

Bill’s polishing revealed the hexagonal shapes of fossilized coral. That coral is known as Hexagonaria. Apparently it thrived in the shallow sea that was here during the Devonian Era 350 million years ago.

Thanks Bill for creating such a wonderful work of art!
