    Notogoneus sp., Priscacara liops, Diplomystus dentatus & Knightia eocaena
    Eocene
    Green River Formation
    Wyoming, USA

    This gigantic inlay fossil fish mural features a "school" of several different varieties from the Green River Formation of Wyoming. A monstrous 20.5 inch (52.07 cm) Notogoneus is the definitive specimen on the large decorative piece, but there are eight fossil fish on this huge mural including a Priscacara measuring 10.5 inches (26.67 cm) and a Diplomystus measuring 12.5 inches (31.75 cm) as well as five small Knightia rounding out this prehistoric aquatic scene. This monstrous mural is fully reinforced with a thick wooden backing and is also fitted with a cleat and groove system for secure wall hanging. The large specimen will be a showpiece with any d├ęcor.
