Mike Urban welds the most enchanting dinosaur sculptures for the yard or garden from bits of metal. Reclaimed scraps from tractors, shovels and other implements give the dinosaurs even more charm.

Very cool! Where is it located?

What a great way to repurpose metal. I always wonder where such large slabs of leftover metal go once they’re no longer useful, so I love this. The subtle farming forms within the dinos really joins them to the green background. I’ve found other green-friendly wall art with quirky options for interiors.

Awesome. There is lots of photos on the site you linked, but I still can’t find the location of garden. Is it open to the public?

Wow, must take great skill to perfect that craft and I bet the kids love it…wouldn’t fancy looking out the window on a rainy, dark night alone and seeing the outline of a dinosaur though!

Ingenious use of re-purposed metal. You are an artist.

We are in love with these! Surrounded by large ferns or palms, it would be positively prehistoric!

A great memory that people could enjoy when visit the urban garden. Nice work out from the part of the artists.
