The Psittacosaurus

Updated: Jan 8, 2019

Articulated, vegetable-tanned leather marionette.

Each piece cut & burned by hand.

This young Psittacosaurus is made up of over 300 moving parts, all connected and formed with the utmost thoughtfulness, meticulous measurements and plenty of trial and error.


Art is diversified into many realms and the medium of leather forming dates back to the dawn of mankind. Creating prehistoric subject matter goes fluidly alongside a dedication of sorts to the Paleolithic age, the time of man and his use of tools in order to survive in a harsh natural world.

Essentially, my reasons for this work is the passion of realizing how we arrived where we are, remembering the ones who were here before us and the love of ancient art in an ancient medium.
