Re: OXFORD MUSEUM
I spent yesterday at Oxford University's Natural History Museum:
_There are lifesize high-detail
models of _Acanthostega_, _Compsognathus_ and _Archaeopteryx_ - I forget
the name of the artist but his work is well known and much publicised
(he is best known for his Palaeozoic fish).
I believe that this is the work of Bruce J. Mohn. See
<www.dinoart.com/pages/update.html> for a glimpse of his _Archaeopteryx
longipes_ reconstructions. Amazing>>
It might also be Richard Hammond.
There are reconstructions of Acanthostega and a number of Paleozoic fish
on his site:
Perhaps the displays were from more than one artist?

"Devonian tetrapods aren't common anywhere," says Clack. It was like
writing "Unicorns in abundance" or "Wall-to-wall Archaeopteryx."
