Planet Art worked with Dudley’s Geology team, Wrens Nest visitor centre, local schools, visitors to the site and Dudley council.
Over 400 million years ago, the area where Dudley now stands was covered by coral reefs and tropical seas providing an environment for the famous fossils we find there today. Over 700 types of fossil are known to have come from Wren’s Nest, 186 of which were first discovered and described here and 86 are found nowhere else on Earth.
The seven sister’s interpretation art work was inspired by Silurian Period and specifically Sir Roderick Murchison’s documentation of the fossils found at Wrens nest.
