Master of puppets : Sculpting ancient worlds

Eriksson, Mats E. LU (2014) In Geology Today 30(3). p.98-104
Abstract

Some extraordinary people have dedicated their lives to making art pieces out of long dead organisms. One of them is Esben Horn, founder of model shop 10 Tons Studios on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark. A bona fide 'master of puppets', he makes jaw-dropping replicas for museums around the world, with the utmost respect for science and organismal anatomy. Recently, our joint efforts resulted in the exhibition 'Heavy Metal and Punk Fossils'-a novel, albeit perhaps unconventional, forum for scientific outreach. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons Ltd, The Geologists' Association & The Geological Society of London.
