This is a maquette for a painting. It represents Toxochelys weeksi, a Cretaceous marine turtle. T. weeksi is not known from compete remains, so I used other Toxochelys species to fill in the gaps. The maquette is about hand-sized and is made from Kato Polyclay over an armature of wire and aluminum foil.

Thanks! I'm hard at work on the painting. It looks like a big mess, but I have hopes it will turn out!
