Large multi fish mortality plate featuring numerous knightia on a transitioning depth layered sandstone plate. The fish are very well preserved showing scales and bone structure. As well there a few fish just under the stone layer which can still be seen. Knightia are related to current day herring and sardines. This piece shows the destructive nature and force that must have been present in order to have killed numerous fish in the same instant of time. Having so many fish in a small area make this truly special and a one of a kind conversation piece.
Measurements of the plate are 31" tall x 42" wide. It is backed with 3/4 cabinet grade plywood and metal french cleats ready to hang in the home or office.
