I joined the opening ceremony and the lecture meeting of Spain dinosaur special exhibition at Osaka Museum of Natural HIstory.
The lectures by Jose Luis Sanz and Francisco Ortega were very interesting!
I gave Tambatitanis toy to Ortega and Sanz.
I sculpted the original model of the toy. Tambatitanis specimens are also exhibited at the special exhibition.
Giant cephalopod "Ammonite" from Mysterious Island(1961). I sculpted the original model of this toy. This year, Japanese sexagenary cycle is sheep. The name of Ammonite came from Egyptian god Ammon that has horns like sheep.
