Hidden among bushes, two prehistoric predators sneak forward, watching and sniffing out their next prey. They hunt together using their natural intelligence to reach their goal faster and more effectively. Among the most feared creatures of the Jurassic world recreated by man, Iron Studios presents “Just The Two Raptors,” featuring the lethal Velociraptors, to honor the legacy of the work of Stan Winston and Steven Spielberg.
Inspired by a promotional concept created by Stan Winston’s studios, master of visual effects and responsible for the creation of the dinosaurs in the 1993 movie Jurassic Park, Iron Studios recreated this scenario that presents the scary beasts in their original tones on a diorama base formed by the earthy terrain of the Costa Rican rainforest. The raptors present themselves as if they were moving through the vegetation, with the iconic Jurassic Park logo carved into the front. In the film, the paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant explains to a young visitor who disdains Velociraptor fossils, “Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous period. You get your first look at this “six-foot turkey” as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head — and you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement, like a T-Rex, he’ll lose you if you don’t move — but no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that’s when the attack comes not from the front, but from the side, from the other two raptors, you didn’t even know were there. Because Velociraptor’s a pack hunter and used coordinated attack patterns to take down his prey!”. This dialogue inspired the name of this statue.
