    LIFELIKE ONE-OF-A-KIND DINOSAUR SCULPTURE - STYRACOSAURUS
    Artist/Sculptor: John P. Fischner

    Artist/Sculptor John P. Fischner hails from the tiny town of Needville, Texas but his first and lasting interest has been big dinosaurs, which he strives to visualize through his art and filmmaking. He sculpts life-sized dinosaurs for museums, scientific institutions, parks and dino-art collectors but started his career doing small sculptures like this collection of the great denizens from a time long ago.

    One of the more unusual looking Ceratopsian dinosaurs, this creature resembles a rhinoceros at first glance with its armor-plated body. The multiple horns are captured here with a two-tone coloration that adds another aspect of realism to this sculpture.
    Measurements: 20 inches (50.8 cm) long x 13.5 inches (34.29 cm) tall.
    Offered at no reserve.


    Provenance:
    A Private Texas Collection
