The Brachiosaur has for many years been my favorite sauropod. In high school, I made a clay sculpture of a Brachiosaur skull based on the skeleton that used to serve as an entrance arch into the main hall of the Field Museum in Chicago. I spent many hours photographing and sketching that skeleton in preparation for the sculpture. But it wasn’t until I was wrist-deep in making it that I noticed all the anatomical similarities it had to a theropod skull. Of course, this is not news to anyone familiar with dinosaur cladistics, but I’ve always approached dinosaurs as an aesthetic phenomenon first, so scientific realizations I make along the way are a secondary bonus.
