‘’ESSCENCE OF REX ‘’ by Chris Navarro life size Tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur bronze sculpture 28 feet length 13 feet height 7 feet width with a weight of 5500 lbs. The sculpture was created showing one side as an anatomical skeleton while the other side is completely fleshed out. The sculpture was created with an internal lighting system of Led lights that run through the sculpture. The light radiates out from within the skeletal side giving a unique and special effect. ‘’To bring it to life, I want this sculpture to have that ‘‘wow’ factor’ ’chrisnavarro.com


The sculpture is placed at the entry to the Tate Geological Museum Casper College, Casper, Wyoming.
