Sculpture: Malaysian Dragon Skeleton

After completing a few chicken meals and even a turkey, Ryan of Mad Art Lab took all the bones, bleached them in peroxide and then constructed a completely kick ass dragon sculpture.

"A while back I realized that the same dinosaur display that I had seen when I was a child, one that told me about the huge, cold-blooded, reptilian dinosaurs was still standing, but now it told a story of colorful ancestors of birds.

The Museum Effect is how the dim lighting, glass cases, Latin subscript, dry copy, hushed tones and felt ropes all combine to give an aura of truth and infallibility. The display style for artifacts of historical worth has become so universally accepted that one can co-opt those same rules to create a compelling lie."
