Dinosaur Skeleton Motorcycle

Artist Jud Turner of Eugene, Oregon, made this sculpture out welded steel. It’s about 44 inches long and is callled “MortalCycle”. In his artist’s statement, he writes:

Using welded steel and found objects, I create artwork which embraces opposites — the tension between humans and nature; the perils of balancing biology and technology; or the combination of ancient fossils with modern machinery. I also engage contradictions by the materials I choose — human forms which appear solid and realistic, but which were made with a delicate surface of thin wire, allowing the viewer to see through the figure; or by mixing the sense of scale in a piece, using large items alongside tiny pieces.
