Ancient belemnite, wood, carving

Pieces of a belemnite (an ancient cephalopod) are enchased in the wooden barrel. Belemnites lived in the Carboniferous and Cretaceous periods and then died off. They are also known as “devil's fingers”. The top of the flash-card is made of oak carved in the shape of a belemnite's head.
