    Dinosaur Colour Chart 1993

    , Chika Annen, March 2022, print

    The chart shows sampling colours of dinosaurs from magazines, “Dinosaur!”, published in 1993. 
    The visual representation of dinosaurs and their association with cultural/social demands surrounding science have changed over time. Dinosaurs are very particular beings; The evidence of their existence is mere remains and have never been seen as living creatures during human history. Due to their monstrous nature, we are familiarised with their unimaginable appearances, but our impression of these dinosaurs demonstrates the contemporary romanticisation of mythical creatures.
