Combining million-year-old fossils with modern design, the four wall sculptures called "Erklärungsversuch"- which in German means "Explanation Attempt"- are made of 140 million-year-old ammonites (Perisphinktes, Madagascar), slate (wood maggots), aluminum and iron frames. With this great piece of art, you can create a natural history museum effect in your living space and discover new layers every day.

Ammonites from Madagascar, Posidonia slate from the Swabian Alb, and aluminum are artistically worked and reconstructed in "slow-motion" in this four-piece wall sculpture. Artistic inspiration and meticulous craftsmanship combined with millions of years of mysticism create an inspiring one-of-a-kind piece. Art meets evolution...

How is an ammonite born? It is born in a crack, grows in the rock and eventually reaches its full size, erupts from the rock and emerges into the light of day. This is the scientific hypothesis of today's natural philosophers to explain the fossilized sea creatures in the mountains.

The ammonite, a prehistoric octopus, was a unique creature - a fossilized, aesthetic representation of the evolution of life. It awakens to a new, second life, reverently integrated into a work of art.
