Ammonites are an extinct group of shelled sea creatures that lived in the time of the dinosaurs. They are now prized by fossil hunters for their beautiful spiral that conforms to the "golden ratio". This one is reproduced in English walnut, a species known for its lovely grain and soft shades of brown that, in this piece, are highlighted by the curves of the ammonite shell.
