A giant Tyrannosaurus Rex sculpture sits atop the platform of Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches by the Seine River in Paris, France. Created by French artist and sculptor Philippe Pasqua, the 4-metre-tall and 7-metre-long structure is composed of 350 molded bones, constructed in the likeness of those discovered in China. The colossal dinosaur skeleton is designed as an accurate depiction of the skeletal assemblage with a silvery finish.
The chromed aluminum figure was commissioned by Charlotte Bruel-Matovic, the daughter of the founder of Bateaux-Mouches, in an effort to support and promote contemporary art along the river. Its size and unexpected placement in the area adds a new and ironic sense of life.
