We saw one – yes, that’s right – a real T-Rex. Well, the skeleton at least. At the Smithsonain.
We sat there with a pen and pad and sketched it over 300 times. Each version got better and better. Day and night we sat there, feverishly sketching, shirts soaked with sweat until this guy with a smooth, swirly moustache came up to us and said, ‘enough’. That’s when we knew we had designed a more than OK Smithsonian T-Rex Skeleton Lapel Pin.
There is strong debate about whether the Tyrannosaurus Rex was a predator or scavenger. It had small arms that would have made it hard to grip prey, suggesting it may have been a scavenger. On the other hand, evidence in favour of it being a predator includes its forward pointing eyes that would’ve have allowed for greater depth perception to capture prey. Inspired by the lovable Dinosaur that we saw in the bones, the Smithsonian T-Rex Skeleton Lapel Pin exudes sophistication and is hand crafted in a beautiful silver. Designed exclusively by The Brothers at OTAA.
