Blue Iguanodon, unique piece
This work is part of Mami KANNO’s precious collection.
Mami KANNO is also passionate about dinosaurs.
Iguanodon was one of the first dinosaur species to be discovered. For this creation, Mami was inspired by the first reconstruction carried out by the geologist and paleontologist researcher Gideon MANTELL, who, due to lack of sufficient information at the time, had given the animal a "horn" which was in reality a bone of his thumb. The error has since been corrected, but this story helped make Mantell's Iguanodon a mythical animal.
The iguanodon by Mami KANNO is a mysterious creature, it is a work of art endowed with a unique charm in the world.
