Medium: Mixed medium: Wool, wood, metal, dye, cotton, paint, antique cabinet, blown egg, electric lights.
This piece is an imaginary Natural History Museum exhibit designed to mimic the large taxidermy specimens found in Natural History Museums since they began. Two needlefelted fiber art sculptures - a mama Purrasaurolophus and a baby just hatching out of it's shell are surrounded by flora in the lighted interior of the case. The lights are designed to shine both cool and warm glows, can be dimmed, and can be controlled by the included remote. The are powered by batteries, so the case requires no wiring. The case in an antique curio, hand-painted with an added latch-closure door in the back. Two original landscape paintings are framed into the sides of the case.
The wool for the Dinokitties was hand-dyed by the artist and the mama Purrasaurolophus took over 250 hours to complete. Come see this phenomenal one of a kind object at our booth A11 @scopeartshow
