fossils art, designed by Annesuse Raquet
Design, manufacturing and assembling are yet “hand made in Germany”;with component parts coming from all over the world.
Each object is unique and comes with a numbered leather label.

Annesuse Raquet has been active in international fossil trading since many years and ranks among the most renowned dealers within the industry. She quickly put her focus on aesthetic exhibits which were shown at international exhibitions and can be viewed publicly in museums.
In 2011 she started her own label “annsus – take a look”, where fossil and stone objects are being designed and merchandised.

Her special design technique consists of combining extraordinary fossils with high quality materials such as minerals, wood, acrylic, lotus leaves and precious metals. Thus she creates outstanding objects for walls and tables as well as free standing items.
As an extravagant form of art they fascinate the contemplator. The vivid design makes these fossils seem immortal and eclipse the fact that they are million year old prehistoric relicts. These modern compositions are absolutely in line with the trend in upscale interior design.

Please note: For carefully packing and safe transportation, we have to built boxes. We help you to find the best transportation to your destination. The export documents for all customs declaration will be done. Therefore we need approximately 3-7 days. It is also possible, to pick up the purchased items in Germany.

The fossils are my rightful properties; claims of third parties do not exist. They are not listed in the “National Directory of valuable cultural assets” and fossils do not belong to the “Washington Agreement”. Any reproduction must be first requested in writing and approved by the artist.
