Who is Ivan the Olorotitan?
Ivan the Oloratitan was an elegant hadrosaur. It had a stretched, upright, graceful figure and a tolerant, loving, and optimistic attitude. It would not complain about life because of setbacks, would not feel jealous when facing excellent dinosaurs, nor cast mocking eyes on those weak dinosaurs. It could calmly face its own life and strive to live every day and every moment.
How did ZHAO Chuang and YANG Yang create Ivan the Olorotitan?
The Size of Ivan the Olorotitan
Hadrosaurs without any special “equipment” often defended themselves with their huge and stout body, and the same was true for Ivan the Oloratitan. This model was set to 10 meters long and 4 meters high to scale down. Its body was very sturdy.
The Crest of Ivan the Olorotitan
Ivan the Olorotitan came from the subfamily Lambeosaurinae of hadrosaurs, suggesting it also possessed a crest like other members. The conspicuous crest was naturally the highlight when we restored Ivan the Olorotitan. Its crest was peculiarly shaped, like an unfolded fan, very beautiful.
The Neck of Ivan the Olorotitan
The neck of Ivan the Olorotitan was elongated, but because it couldn’t be stretched straight like a swan but curved, it did not look long but rather thick. This part was especially emphasized when we restored Ivan the Olorotitan.
The Limbs of Ivan the Olorotitan
Under normal circumstances, hadrosaurs walked on four limbs, but sometimes they stood on their hind limbs, such as when forging or encountering predators. In restoring Ivan the Olorotitan, we adopted a bipedal standing, hoping to present this particular posture to everyone.
