For the person who has everything, what could be cooler than owning your very own Jurassic age dinosaur skeleton?
“The D. altus is an extremely rare Jurassic dinosaur. There are only two mounted skeletons of this species: one is on display at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pennsylvania, USA; the second is offered in these rooms and is the finer of the two without exception.
Collected in 1993 and mounted on a discrete yet sturdy armature, the body is posed in a full-flight run, with the bird-like skull turned inquisitively towards the observer. The bones display a lovely soft creamy coloring, with neat restoration where required. The pose is appropriate – the herbivorous dryosaurus relied on speed to escape predators, using its long slender legs and heavy, counterbalancing tail.”
The skeleton measures over ten feet long and stands three feet tall.
So, break your piggy bank and check out the auction at ArtFact. But if you can’t swing a few hundred thousand smackers, take a gander at this more reasonable Jurassic dinosaur display.
