Dinosaurs haven't roamed planet Earth for a long time, but if you have recently been in Paris, you may have seen a Jurassic creature. French artist Philippe Pasqua has installed a 12-foot by 21-foot skeletal T-Rex sculpture near the Seine River in Paris, composed of 350 individual bones. The molded chrome parts create a shining, silver T-Rex overlooking the water and watching over the Eiffel Tower. Although the creature may not be real, the skeletal sculpture marks a surreal presence in a major metropolis, as the ancient being witnesses how the world has changed since its existence.
