Pecten fossil, my dream has come true! Maria Elena Ferrari Italy
We found many fossil shells, where we are digging to build our new home.This new would not it be interesting but we live on a hill 300 m above sea level in Emilia!!! A few million years ago there was the sea floor, and inside these deposits of marine origin have also found this Pecten, shell famous Botticelli's Venus emerging from a Pecten! The brown parts are the parts of the real fossil bivalves (watercolor on Fabriano sketchbook) where is broken he left his mark (white parts). I'm quite excited to know that you have in your hands and be able to sketch something that has perhaps ten (or less) million years ...!!!If there is an experienced paleontologist between you ... I am curious! My dream has come true: to have a beach house!
