So having covered the work of Helmut Tischlinger on here already as well as yesterday´s UV post, and Archaeopteryx, that most famous of archosaurs (with the possible exception of T.rex), three times now so it’s time to combine the two. I have written before about how I feel the best of Helmut’s work, however unintentionally, combines science and art. The image provides scientific information with aesthetic beauty. Don’t believe me? Hopefully this will shake a few neurones loose:
I really don’t think I can, or need to, add much to that.
As ever, please note that these images are effectively on loan. Please do not copy, download or link to these without asking me first. I can’t watermark or protect them so I rely on goodwill to save them. These have been published before, mostly in Peter Wellnhofer’s superb book of Archaeopteryx.
