Imprint of an Archosaur Oxidized by the Sun; Records Unknown

A set of 16 silver gelatin prints are displayed with text. Light has fused a series of residual imprints displayed as evidence from this event. Displayed here are the artifacts that were collected and archived into the vault.



We see an image of the archosaur, fossilized into the limestone bolide from what looks to be an unknown sphere of incandescent plasma strong enough to oxidize the ground layer of the pre-continental shelf. This energy source must have been close enough to the surface to burn an imprint on the layer and shortly after experience a sudden drop in temperature to preserve it in time. The archosaur is known as the ruling reptile of the Cretaceous period, possessing three sets of teeth and at one time an opportune source of food. We see this specimen emerging onto the terrain, deviating from its usual marine adaptations, however not withstanding the event of impact.
