About the Design
The color scheme of this Torosaurus reflects the spectrum of the bronze casting process. The yellow-white back has the appearance of molten metal. The colors then change, ranging from the red-orange of the solidifying stage to the light brown of the cooling stage. Ultimately, the base of the final product ranges from the greenish color of various patinas to a highly polished, mirror-like finish.  Two bronze plates on the shins and plaques at the feet complete the image.
