Fast and furious scurrying is going on at the bone mines as volunteers explode with new found enthusiasm for the articulation of this whale skeleton. (^-^)
|The Paint Fairy came and painted the rib cage framework.|
|When the framework was dry, the ribs were put back on it by Marilyn Kirkham. |
Ribs go on, ribs come off, then on again seems to be the theme as
different stages of articulation take place.
|Gaye Wolfe continued her work of beautifying the bones.|
|Lee and Wes get ready to "flip" the skull over so work can be done to its underside.|
|Hannah Heimbuch stopped by to have her picture taken. (^-^) . .No, actually Hannah |
is doing a story on the whale project and stopped by the bone mines
to interview Lee and some of the volunteers.
|Now what's that Sam Smith up to? Looks like he has a plan. . .|
|. . .and Gaye is in on it!|
|Even Melisse Reichman has gotten into the act. Guess it got a little warm out there in the sun.|
|It's a whale tail!|
|Sam is sculpting an external tail that will be displayed with the skeleton.|
|While all that was going on, Marilyn (with Wes Cartey's assistance), |
made a template for the skull cradle.
