Life size sculpture of Tyranosaurus Rex

Tyranosaurus Rex : This sculpture in mild steel is one of the most exciting projects I have tackled to date. Based on fossil remains of several dinosaurs found in America, it stands 5 metres high and is 11.5 metres long. The patina was achieved with mineral salts creating an authentic “feel” to the bones. Anatomically correct, this work is a free interpretation of the sheer raw power of this, the largest of the massive saurian carnivores. Commissioned for a museum, it stands at present in the Dordogne’s “Valley of Mankind” (south of France).
