Curious devices, forbidden artifacts, mysterious creatures, and intriguing documents.
Crypto fossils are a lot of fun as props and conversation pieces and the more outrageous the better. I have no problem with obvious fantasy pieces but there has been a growing problem with fakes, which is an entirely different category from the neat item shown here. I like a good Piltdown Man or fossilized eldritch horror as well as anybody. Paleo Direct has been trying to combat fake fossils, sold as real and they have a pretty good tutorial http://www.paleodirect.com/fakechinesefossils1.htm and http://www.paleodirect.com/fakefossils1.htm .
These are brilliant! And even affordable. Checking my bank account now.
I very, very rarely actually gasp aloud upon seeing something awesome. This was literally breathtaking. Holy CRAP.
@ NaamahThe amount of work that went in to something like this is mind boggling.@ JensI think he's using the addiction business model. Sure, one is reasonable, but after that you want them all.@ CoastConFanWhat a find! While fake fossils are a real problem the information about how they're created is fascinating. I foresee a trip to Home Depot to get a slab of rock in my future.
A really great design.I actually took a step in that direction myself, with a trilobite box. Not that difficult really with patience, a Dremel, and a bit of Skulpy.
