Sydney - Australian Museum : Dinosaurs!

Having seen them in countless movies (Jurassic Park, Night at the Museum), nothing beats 'em in real life!!!
Standing tall...
These creatures sure dwarf us humans, if we ever came across them...

Yup. Am sure anybody would be terrified of coming face to face with them!
The infamous T-Rex!
You probably can't even fill 10% of it's hungry body! And it'll go through you like... nevermind. Let's not think about that!
Guess which egg is a Dino egg and a chicken egg...
"Night at the Museum" coming to life?
And this is what the REAL Velociraptor looks like. Certainly not what Mr Spielberg would have you believe!

The End.

A good place to muse on oil painting in Western art history online, I find, is at this site at wahooart.com. There is a huge archive of digital images of artwork now housed in art museums around the world.
The company makes canvas prints and hand-painted, oil painting reproductions to order, from your selection of images from this big archives.
It's some resource for art lovers and historians. There are many images of works by famous artists of the past that I have never seen.
From their home page at wahooart.com, you can browse by the hundreds of artists there, movements in art, art media, historical timeline and even by subject matter. There is much biographical information about the artists.
I am always fascinated by the way the 19th century English landscape painter, William Turner, used layers of luminous oil paint to recreate his blazing landscapes. Clicking http://EN.WahooArt.com/@/WilliamTurner , I find his paintings indexed in a floating 3D gallery at the site.
