"This adventure is made possible by generations of searchers strictly adherent to a simple set of rules. Test ideas by experiments and observations. Build on those ideas that pass the test. Reject the ones that fail. Follow the evidence wherever it leads, and question everything. Accept these terms, and the cosmos is yours."
- Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos

A few days ago I posted a photo of a Walliserops trilobite in the beginning stages of preparation. I was able to take some photos of the finished specimen today (first 3 photos). Masterful preparation work. The final photos in the set are a repost of the initial preparation work and collecting locality at Foum Zguid, Morocco.
