Fossilized crocodile (Crocodileimus robustus)

The stone witnesses of the prehistoric times: the time of the first flowering plants when life only adjusted to its flight, turning the Jurassic marine organisms in minerals in the vast lagoons and then in the works of art created by nature and the fossilized witnesses of the former communities. Studying them provided the basis of evolutionary research. Our true to the original replicas of the famous and unique fossils open up a deep insight into the life of the prehistoric world.

This fossil with strong skin armoring shows very well that the crocodiles have changed little since the Jurassic period: their characteristics - a long body, short legs, flattened skull and sharp teeth in strong jaws for slow stalking and rapid detection of prey. Upper Jurassic Kimmeridgian; age around 150-140 million years. Location: Cerin, Department Ain / Eastern France. Original: in private ownership, limestone.

Realistic reproduction in stone, patinated. Format 47 x 25 cm.

An art work that is cut in from a stone or wooden surface, not modeled in the round.

According to the degree of projection one can distinguish between low-relief or bas-relief and high relief. The sunk relief is a common form of reliefs in Ancient Egypt, where the depicted scenes were cut into the stone or wood surface.

Among the most famous reliefs are the works of the Florentine master Lorenzo Ghiberti. He created, among others, the bronze doors of the Florence Baptistery, called by Michelangelo the "Gates of Paradise".
