Morocco is rich with artistic inspiration. For example, look at this rendition of a fossil uncovered by paleontologist Andrew Smith in the Anti-Atlas Mountains in 2012. The primitive sea creature was found while excavating sediments dating to about 520 million years ago. If it gets your polymer clay juices going, you can read the full article in yesterday's edition of the journal, Proceedings of the Royal Society B, or search LiveScience for Helcocystis moroccoensis.
