The fossils of dinosaurs meet the fossils of music!
Like many boys, I love dinosaurs. I have many books on the subject at home. When I was little, I knew almost all of them and even wanted to become a paleontologist. My favourite? The triceratops! Moreover, this passion has never really left me and it is with my sculptures on vinyl record that I wanted to pay them a tribute. Knowing that the material that makes vinyl is a derivative of petroleum and that oil is a fossil energy, can we say that we come full circle?
A T-Rex skull carved out from a vinyl record
The first tribute was in the form of a T-Rex skull that I carved out from a recycled vinyl record. This piece of art is number 12 in my collection. What is unfortunate is that at the time, when I did it, I had not yet found the right cutting technique. The result is a little bit dodgy but I like it anyway. It is not impossible that I will do it again one of these days!
Trixie, the triceratops made of vinyl records
My second tribute was created in the form of a sculpture. I introduce you Trixie, the triceratops. Like I said, the triceratops is one of my favourite dinosaurs. I had many models of triceratops when I was a child and I wanted to reproduce one of them with old and unplayable vinyl records. This sculpture is made of 37 pieces from 5 vinyl records.
Trixie the triceratops is proof that the vinyl record, prehistoric music support, can still grow old!
If you want to discover other projects and pieces of art of the same kind, I would strongly urge you to have a look in the section sculptures in vinyl record of my website! You can also find other works in the gallery of the Cb Vinyl Record Art!
