Animals of the Past
The strange creatures
that flourished on the face of this earth millions of years ago are depicted in the form of
realistic miniature models assembled in a series of three dioramas. These reduced models of
various dinosaurs and other extinct reptiles such as Stegosaurus, Brontosaurus, Triceratops,
etc., and some of the better known extinct mammals of the tertiary period such as Sivatherium
and Moeritherium and the still later ones of the Pleistocene period (Elephas primigenius) are
mounted on realistic artificial foregrounds with suitable backgrounds of contemporary
landscape showing the typical vegetation that flourished during that remote period.
