Spinosaurus

Dale Lewis
Minnesota
Materials: Mild Steel & Stainless Steel
Sponsors:
Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc
Selling Price: $12,000

Artist Statement:

The idea to make Spinosaurus came from a National Geographic story. New fossil discoveries led scientists to redefine what Spinosaurus looked like and how he lived. Barn cleaner chain links salvaged from my cousin’s dairy farm made some fine vertebrae.
Spinosaurus is just a baby; at 25’ long, he’s half the size of an adult.
