Visit of Villers-sur-Mer - The iron dinosaur

Avenue of the Republic


This steel sculpture of 4,80 m (unique piece), made by the artist Patrice Mesnier, represents a tyrannosaurus. Today installed on the roundabout at the intersection of Avenue de la République and Avenue Jean Moulin, it was previously exhibited at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris shortly after its creation, made an appearance at the Grand art market at the Bastille and was hired for the filming of "La fidelite" by Zulawski alongside "Rhinocéros de Dalí".
