"Trilobite" is a recycled metal sculpture by Arizona artist John T. Benedict. His love for creating art stems from using recycled materials and solving problems in order to create something beautiful.
Created from reclaimed steel and auto parts, the Trilobite emulates the stunning fossils seen in the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Morian Hall of Paleontology. Trilobites were one of the most successful early animals on the planet, thriving for about 300 million years. They are a signature creature of the Paleozoic Era, when complex life forms began to proliferate, including most invertebrate groups as well as fish and reptiles.
