Copepteryx(Plotopteridae)(2011 )

Copepteryx

 































This model was made for the special exhibition of  The Mizunami Fossil Museum in this summer.
I sculpted this work with the supervision of  Hiroshige Matsuoka(Kyoto university), a researcher of  fossil birds.

Usually, Plotopteridae had been expressed look like to penguin. But this time, we attempted to reconstruct as the style of Pelecaniformes.

Went looking to see the penguin form, and definitely like this new look better.
