Little Fossil

Grey stone color tile with brownish-yellow "fossil organism" in it. The organism is shaped like a backward "C" and has curves and ridges on it.

Materials: CelluClay, acrylic paint.

I always considered this to be perhaps an alien larva of some kind. The box art for some of the Alien movies originally inspired the design. Certain editions have circular swirl designs that I find interesting.

First I created a square tile, then made the larva on top of it, ground and sanded it all, before finishing it with acrylic paint and spray sealer.

It’s a little under 3.5 inches square, and about an inch tall at its thickest point, in the middle of the larva.
