I have always had a deep fascination with Ammonites. This fascinating group of extinct marine invertebrates have a beautiful spiralled shaped shell that resembles the curved spiral of a rams horn. Since only fossil records of these ancient creatures exist I have been able to have a bit of fun with colour, depicting the form in a vibrant orange red.
