More Trilobite Sculptors

Trilobite Me in Orange

Trilobites' power as a tool for inspiration is on the increase, if the growing number of people creating their own trilobite effigies is any indication. More and more often, the visual pleasure of trilobites' architectural symmetry spreads into the lives and repertoires of artists of all ages.
