Artist’s Fun Fact:

My goal was to make a decent-sized Tyrannosaurus Rex that looked mechanically evolved. I used many scrap machine parts in this sculpture. The ribs and most of his teeth are from a John Deere rotary hoe. The pieces I find the most interesting are the stainless steel claws on his little stubby arms. They are part of a Boeing 747 cargo bay door latch. Looking at this sculpture makes me think “How does T-Rex deal with an itch?”
