Illuminosaurus is not for the faint hearted. This awe-inspiring 3m-high dinosaur is captured in a moment of fierce pursuit.

Dinosaurs are the inspiration of myth and legend; their bones were often recorded as the remains of dragons and biblical giants. Their gargantuan size, arrays of teeth, claws and armoured plates sparked visions of fantastic creatures with supernatural abilities.

The earliest recordings of dinosaur remains were made by historian Chang Qu and date from the Jin Dynasty (265-316). They were found in the Sichuan provence of China, where ‘dragon bones’ were highly sought after for traditional medicines.

Constructed from bent laser-cut steel, Illuminosaurus has a spine lined with hundreds of individually controlled RGB pixels. The creature’s life force ripples through its body in dazzling colour displays emanating from its teeth, tremendous claws and bursting out of its chest and mouth.

This incredible light sculpture draws inspiration from one of the better-known dinosaur species, Deinonychus, which shares many of the anatomical features of the Velociraptor dinosaurs featured in the movie Jurassic Park.

Illuminosaurus is intended to inspire the imagination, to create a sense of the magnificence and power of these prehistoric creatures that once roamed the earth.
