Back to the Past
Drawings by Enrico Bonino
Recently (late 2008) I participated in the creation of a museum devoted entirely to trilobites, the Back to the Past Museum
in Cancun, Mexico. Many dioramas and thematic posters shown at this
museum represent the ancient marine environments where these
arthropods, and their relatives, lived.
In the illustrations I've selected for the PaleoNet exhibit I included
some of the dioramas that I’ve created of internationally known
fossil lagerstätten. These reconstructions focus mainly on
Paleozoic marine environments, though some “temporal jumps”
are also present to more modern (Eocene) ecological habitats.
