I was lucky enough to be asked to paint this picture of a t-rex for The Naturalis Biodiversity Centre, located just outside Amsterdam.
|In 2016 the Naturalis Biodiversity Centre excavated a well preserved t-rex skeleton in Montana.|
|The t-rex skeleton (300 bones) was then flown from the USA to the Netherlands.|
Passengers on a KLM flight departing from Chicago heard a surprising announcement while they were waiting to board. They were told that they’d be flying to Amsterdam with the 66+ million year old Tyrannosaurus.
|Escorted by police, the remains were driven to Leiden|
