Cambrian period

Oil painting : 24" x 30"

The Cambrian period was characterized by an interesting diversity of life in the seas. Life had not yet evolved upon land. The highest forms of life existing at this time were the trilobites, which reached lengths up to two feet. Here is shown a view of the ocean floor during this period with a gathering of denizens from its shadowy depths. Species include Paradoxides gracilis (trilobite), Hydrocephalus minor (trilobite), Peronopsis integra (trilobite) Stromatocystis pentangularis, & Acadocrinus nuntius.

TIME - 550MYA - Middle Cambrian
