Deinonychus, a fearsome predator from the Cretaceous period, played a pivotal role in the Dinosaur Renaissance, a revolution in paleontology during the 1960s and 70s. This renaissance was largely sparked by John Ostrom's groundbreaking work on Deinonychus, which challenged the prevailing view of dinosaurs as sluggish, cold-blooded reptiles. Ostrom's research revealed that Deinonychus had bird-like features, such as a semi-lunate carpal bone and probably had a more dynamic, warm-blooded nature. This discovery not only revitalized interest in dinosaur biology but also reshaped our understanding of the evolutionary link between dinosaurs and birds, forever altering the scientific landscape.

This piece is a hand painted resin Deinonychus antirrhopus skull. Digitally sculpted in ZBrush and 3D printed, it employs magnets to link the mandible to the Skull.
