This is part of the Excavation Series. The design is an actual photograph of fossils (sea shells).
I digitally transferred the image onto plexiglasses by laser cutting and engraving.

The idea is to preserve natural history with current technologies. Multiple layers of etched artifacts
creat an illusion of as if vewiers are digging deeper into the excavation site.
