0514: Backgrounds

I’m always looking for different backgrounds to match up with the fossils I find. Sometimes it’s a rock background. Sometimes it’s a rusty metal plate. Today it’s the cover of an antique tin box. This first group of images show some of that exploration.

This gastropod has become a recent favorite of mine. It’s shape seems to be so particularly appealing as a design object as well as an element of deep time. In the image below it’s a Devonian bindi on the head of Ganesh.

All those recent cornet images had me thinking about an earlier project I did at the old, crumbling Burden Iron Works, with all its pipes and Rube Goldberg-esque machinery. So here are a couple from that structure that is no longer. It was torn down several years ago.
