Ammonite Fossil

English walnut, with (American?) walnut base.  Started out just doing the in-the-round of the shell, then I saw online that many people cut the fossils open to reveal the inside.  So after I finished the outside, I cut the thing in half by hand (nerve wracking experience!)  Then I did the insides.  Both sides of each piece are carved, but they are mounted in a way to display one "outside" and one "inside" at the same time.  I don't care too much for the base and I may make another one at some point.
