American Theropod´s baby T. rex

This limited-edition one-piece casting of Jun Huang´s sculpt has unfailingly proven most popular at shows.
Squatting just 17cm high, those big eyes seem to be looking up imploringly and even we humans find this appealing in a tyrannosaur. The over-sized and gawky feet are a juvenile feature and I painted them in slate-blues and greys to make them stand out even more. Offseting the cuteness of that upward gaze with the slight cock to the head, a few bones were scattered near the feet - is this youngster looking up in expectation of some tender care ... or some tender meat ....?

Finished in 2004.
