... of planet Earth.
The top star (also shown with some of it's mates) was found in a block of Hornton stone, which comes from Oxfordshire. It's the same sort of plant-stem as in the previous post. I think Oxfordshire was a bit closer to the equator when this plant fell into the mud. The curious fossil shell was purloined from an 18th century grotto that I restored some years ago. I think I might do a post on that grotto next. By another sheer chance, it is also in Lacock, near where I found the first star. It made it into 'Architectural Digest' magazine, so some of you designers over there in the USA may already have seen it.
