Giant T-Rex On The Loose In Paris [Pics]

A prehistoric sculpture is set up to encourage contemporary art along the Seine.

A giant Tyrannosaurus Rex can currently be found along the Seine River in Paris, France. This particular prehistoric beast however, was sculpted by Philippe Pasqua to promote contemporary art along the river.

Towering over passersby at a height of 4 meters, the sculpture is made up of 350 molded bones and stretches to 7 meters long. It was constructed to resemble the skeletons discovered in China – with the exception of a silvery finish that makes it glisten in the night.

The T-Rex sits on top of the platform of Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches, a company that provides open-air boat tours along the river. It was requested by Charlotte Bruel-Matovic, daughter of the founder of Bateaux-Mouches.

Apart from promoting contemporary art along the river, the sculpture is also likely to attract tourists all of its own. See it for yourself in the gallery below.
