The Mother Dinosaur Is Always Watchful

Since I showed again the mammoths on the property at the Museum of Nature yesterday, I thought an encore for the other sculptural installation was in order. This is on the east lawn at the museum, a mother and baby pair of dinosaurs by the scientific name chasmosaurus irvinensis.

  2. OMG! They've resurrected these, too? Someone's going to have to clean up after these two. What would you call it--a Dino Scoop? :-)

  3. The baby is so cute. And in the snow!
    Hope you are feeling better, William.

  7. Great sculptures again, William.
    Last week I heard a Dutch museum has bought a complete T-rex that was found in the US. I hope I can see it one time.

  8. It's kind of odd to see dinosaurs in the snow as I usually think of them as tropical. These seem familiar but I'm sure they weren't there in 1967. Now I know what I'm thinking about...the Tyrell museum in Drumheller.

  9. @Orvokki: Mama would be careful!

    @Revrunner: that would involve a lot of work!

    @Dina: getting there.

    @Tomas: quite a contrast to yesterday.

    @Whisk: oh, yes!

    @Tex: true!

    @Denise: now I really have to go inside and photograph!

    @Jan: it's amazing to see fossil skeletons like that.

    @Red: well, North America's climate was very different millions of years ago, not to mention the location. I have been to that museum in Drumheller. It's quite a place!

  10. That is a great picture. I wouldn't want to get that Mama riled up.

  11. I guess you could call this 'equal time'. Oldies but goodies!

  12. As I said, the snow adds something more to the scene!

  13. Now for the really important question: herbivore or carnivore?

  14. An impressive look into history.

  15. I agree with VP as to the snow. This is great!

  16. This reminds me of the statues at the putt putt near Niagara Falls! ;-)

  17. It looks very real roaming the streets.

  18. Striking exciting modern engaging kid-drawing. . . .just fabulous that you show them in snow. . . . make one wonder all sorts of things!

  19. @Judy: she'd be fierce!

    @Birdman: thanks!

    @VP: it's quite a contrast since the animals would not have been in snowy environments.

    @Norma: these are herbivores.

    @Marleen: it's a great museum inside, but when it's full of kids, it's a madhouse.

    @Jose: thanks!

    @Halcyon: it's been many years since I've been to Niagara.

    @Sharon: they certainly do.

    @Cloudia: I've seen many a child walk up to those two dinosaurs.

  20. It's wonderful that these are outside for all to enjoy!

  21. Do you still have snow? Ours is virtually gone!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You had me confused with your pictures of snow! Still enjoying the mild spring weather here. Love the dinosaurs outside playing - far more fun to see than only a skeleton (as impressive as that can be, too)

  23. Did you have to look up that name or did you just pull it out from memory? Curious fans want to know. This is happy and fun sculpture...I'm not sure if Dinos were happy and fun, though. Maybe with their kids.

  24. They look a bit out of their element in the middle of a city!

  25. Re the name: I was teasing you!

    ReplyDelete
  26. @RedPat: they get a lot of attention.

    @Jennifer: a lot of ours is gone.

    @Hamilton: I'll have to photograph these in the spring.

    @Lowell: I figured! Actually I've got a pretty good memory. Even with a med fogged brain.

    @Ciel: they certainly do.

  27. Nice dinosaurs and babies! Hope you're feeling better, William!

  28. Somehow dinosaurs and snow just don't go together. Hope you are better.

  29. I began to say it is pretty lifelike, but, then again, how would we know?

  30. Today's and yesterday's sculptures are impressive...and seem quite real. Aids to the imagination of what they must have been like.
