Invicta Megalosaurus and Iguanodon


Hayward based some of his sculptures on previously existing artwork. For example, his Dipplodocus and Apatosaurus sculptures on these paintings by Czech artist Zdenek Burian, reproduced in paleontologist J. Augusta’s highly collectible book Prehistoric Animals







 ….his Baryonyx on this model sculpted by John Holmes for The Natural History Museum, London, as seen in a souvenir postcard (below)…


…and his dinosaurs Scelidosaurus and Iguanodon on paintings by Neave Parker, reproduced in these black and white  postcards from the British Museum (Natural History), now The Natural History Museum, London.
