This intricately-detailed work of fossil whalebone carving showcases a frog perched atop a lily pad, carved to incredible precision! This unique carving was professionally carved by the skilled sculptor and artist Ron Stevens, from Thailand, in the 1990s.
The Gaviota coast in California is a beach-goers' paradise - and an exciting place for fossil hunters. Dating back over 15 million years, the Monterey shale formation along this coastline provides valuable insight into the marine life of bygone eras; its mudstone contains remarkable specimens, including fossilized whalebone, from the Miocene.
Without the powerful force of the San Andreas fault, California's coast would still be submerged deep beneath ocean waters. For 18 million years, this geological phenomenon has pushed and pulled with tremendous pressure to create dramatic elevation - transforming what was once a seabed into the spectacular land we see today!
Size of fossil whalebone carving of a frog on a lily pad: 3 3/8" L X 2 1/8" W X 1 1/2" H. Weight: About 6.7 ounces.
Ships with Certificate of Authenticity and information about the carving.
