Tucson, Arizona – Monday, January 30, 2023 – Several dino skeletons from the films, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” and “Wonderstruck;” one of the world’s largest quartz crystal spheres; magnificent mounted Ice Age specimens; natural limestone murals with Eocene fossil fishes and palm fronds - and much more - are on display, free to the public, at GeoDecor, for two weeks only.
The three dino skeletons of Hollywood fame are composed of research-quality elements which have been individually cast from original bone, then mounted. The “Jurassic World” specimens appeared in the museum scenes of “Fallen Kingdom.” The "Wonderstruck" specimen appears in the movie poster as well as in the film. Additionally, thirteen fully mounted dinosaur skeletons comprising The Doom Collection, are on display, along with thirteen additional mounted dino specimens of this type. Mounted cast specimens such as these are exhibited in museum collections around the world. There are 29 on display at GeoDecor.
