Scott Elyard Art
Trikeratos, product of biology and technology. If someone asked me what it meant, I suppose I’d say, “a fanciful expression of how technology can illuminate details of the distant past.” Yes, that's what I'd say, assuming I can remember it.
The skeleton for this piece is based on photos taken of the Triceratops mount at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History (I was attending SVP in 2008, and had the opportunity to take lots of photo reference).
Prints are available here.
