A fantastic study by Tom Hughes of the famous Appley Bridge meteorite. The Appley Bridge meteorite fell on 13th October 1914, as a spectacular fireball which many locals feared could be an Aeroplane or Zepplin attack due to the recent onset of World War I. These are limited edition prints signed and numbered by Tom from an edition of 12. They are printed on acid free 300gsm 100% cotton rag paper. The original is an oil painting on canvas board and is a study of the remaining main mass held at the Natural History Museum, London (Specimen no. BM1920.40). The study highlights the complex shapes and structures of the crusted surface of this beautiful stony meteorite. Prints are available un mounted and are 21 by 29.7 cm (A4) in size with a small border.
