Artists Bob Walters and Tess Kissinger recently created a series of large scale murals for the new Dinosaurs in Their Time installation at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
Unveiled on November 21, 2007, one of them is the largest dinosaur mural in the world, measuring 180 ft long by 15 ft high (54 x 4.5 metres). It portrays life in the Jurassic Period based on findings from the Morrison formation (images below).
Another, measuring 92 ft long by 15 ft high (28 x 4.5 metres), portrays fauna and flora at the end of the Cretaceous Period found in the Hell Creek formation. This dramatic, detailed and scientifically accurate work has been awarded the prestigious Lanzendorf prize for 2-dimensional art by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (images at right).
