Time Prints

The Getty Center in Los Angeles, California

These are fossils of plants I found in a travertine stone used to construct The Getty Center. The 1.2 million square feet of travertine used for The Getty are from Bagni di Tivoli, Italy, 15 miles east of Rome. Many of the stones revealed fossilized leaves, feathers, and branches when they were split along their natural grain.
