The Tarbosaurus Project
A cooperation between the Paleontological Museum, University of Oslo, Norway and Institute of Paleobiology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland.
Tarbosaurus on exhibit, April 2000
We were asked by the IMAX Cinema in Oslo to mount a display for their opening of the film "T-rex 3D". We were offered the whole lobby as venue for an exhibit on tyrannosaurids and the evolution of birds. This was a great opportunity for us to explain the Tarbosaurus project.
|The skull was mounted on transparent plastic so it could be admired from both sides.|
|The skull is glued onto the plastic sheet; we are quite nervous at this point.|
|When the lower jaw was mounted we took a deep breath and cleaned the plate for glue and fingerprints.|
|The exhibit is ready!|
