Sure you know all these classic early Permian, north american creatures, Dimetrodon, Edaphosaurus, Eryops. But beyond that there is a rich flora and fauna yet to be explored in paleoart. The Bromacker locality within the Tamback formation is such a case. A new contest just started, with the goal to bring more attention to this lost world and to promote paleoart in general. The contest is linked to a exhibition that will open in March next year, with the best pieces hanging in the exhibition together with famous pieces by Burian for example. The following pictures show some examples of the local fauna.

It oddly invokes a feeling of nostalgia for me.
