Project Description

Set during the Late Cretaceous of 65 million years ago, this fourth panel from the “Age of Reptiles” depicts a red eyed Tyrannosaurus rex momentarily thrown off its quarry of Edmontosaurus by an armored Ankylosaurus crossing its path. The tableaux is full of flowers, and familiar trees such as Ginkgos and Magnolias. Palms such as Sabalites and Palmettos sway with the passing of the giant reptiles. Palm-like shrubs such as Pandanus grow underfoot.
