Crystal Dinosaurs

The crystals are cut from a vintage print, and I don’t think the crystal dinosaurs work particularly well, but it was an interesting exploration. I chose dinosaurs and crystals because of the ethereal, almost magical properties crystals seem to have, combined with dinosaurs which seem very mythical (even though we know they existed), means the images appear quite sci-fi, and almost turn the dinosaurs into insects, which have hard, shiny casings, much like the crystals here.
