As he states: “Bringing fossils back to life is a complex process, and the final step, the creation of attractive renderings of ancient life, is only the tip of the iceberg. Under the surface remain the other nine-tenths of the work, consisting in anatomical and paleontological research, constant observation of nature and continuous artistic training.”
