Crystal Palace dinosaurs

The Crystal Palace dinosaurs are my new favorite thing about London! The sculptures of dinosaurs and extinct animals were completed by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins under the supervision of Sir Richard Owen for the 1854 Crystal Palace exhibition. The Crystal Palace park has a prehistoric atmosphere and provides the perfect backdrop for these awesome creatures!
