Invicta Giraffatitan Model




Giraffatitan (formerly Brachiosaurus brancai) from The Natural History Museum, London (formerly British Museum of Natural History). This is one of a series made by Invicta, first sold at the museum’s gift shop, many of the models sculpted by Arthur Hayward.

Hayward based his sculpture on this painting by Czech artist Zdenek Burian. The art was reproduced in the book Prehistoric Animals by paleontologist J. Augusta.
