More than a fearsome representation of Tyrannosaurus Rex, one of the largest carnivore dinosaurs of all time, this T-Rex Crossing Sign is appropriately diamond-shaped and yellow-hued to convey: WARNING! Youngsters may want to post this Tyrannosaurus Rex Crossing Sign as a cool room decoration. Young people and adults alike may especially appreciate the graphic (“Keep Out!”) subtext of this T-Rex Crossing Sign. Screen-printed in the USA. Aluminum with top-drilled hole for easy hanging, indoors or outside. 12"l. x 12"w.
One of the highlights of a Smithsonian visit is the chance to see marvelously reconstructed skeletons of dinosaurs. It was during the Mesozoic era that dinosaurs flourished and, for reasons that scientists cannot agree upon, became extinct. There are numerous types of dinosaur skeletons to be found at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History: a typical representation of the horned dinosaur, Triceratops, which means “three horns on the head;” Diplodocus, from the auropod group of dinosaurs that were the largest land animals that ever lived; and Stegosaurus, whose tail was armed with long sharp spikes, an effective weapon of defense. A cast model of a Tyrannosaurus rex can also be seen in the Dinosaur Hall.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
