THE BURGESS SHALE

20” x 23” x 1½”

For the MIPCES catalog, David Edwards wrote:

“The Burgess shale was discovered in 1909. Its exquisitely detailed fossils are among the most important ever discovered in paleontology. In collections, the shale consists of hand-dressed gray-black slabs, each containing one or more fossils depicting the ‘Cambrian explosion’ of life. ‘The Burgess Shale’ represents a contemporary, subjective interpretation of the shale, intended for leisurely contemplation and thoughtful examination of its components.”
