A giant, life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) sculpture, formed from aluminum and set amid a spectacular lunar landscape, is among the first set of collaborative art pieces by Hajime Sorayama and Azuma Makoto from AMKK, and was unveiled last month at Bangkok's Central Embassy.

The Japanese pair invite viewers to travel beyond the universe with this unique installation concept that combines the vast reaches of outer space with the nature of Terra Firma. The 11-meter long and 3.74-meter tall aluminum T-Rex - the largest scale installation produced by Sorayama - is a part of an exhibition titled Sorayama Space Park.

It draws on Sorayama's renowned sense of realistic expressive techniques and builds on his series of paintings of dinosaurs which he has produced since the 1980s. "I am excited about the global debut of this work at Central Embassy before it tours to many cities around the world," says Sorayama. "I have always liked dinosaurs and painted many over the years. Showcased here is a T-Rex that was specifically painted for this project and was made into a giant life-size sculpture."
