For Sale: Large Rusty Dinosaurs.

If your passion is dinosaurs, and you have a bit of space in your backyard then one of these is a must buy! As you zoom down North Bascom Ave. (just before San Carlos St. if heading South or after if heading North on Bascom Ave.) you’ll spot the eclectic metal sculptures at Ale Jandra’s. A small but well crafted collection of outdoor furniture, and garden items crafted, and imported from Mexico. Everything from fountains, large pots, and small ornamental goodies to medium and large animals. Among the metal & ceramic animals like monkeys turtles and birds, you’ll find very large horses, zebras, giraffes, and yes dinosaurs!

Most impressive is the collection of large rust covered animals, mainly the horse, giraffes, and dinosaurs…..view the photos I took. The rust on the surface of these metal sculptures is what gives them life in my opinion. To remain shiny or polished is just too industrial looking – rusty belongs in your backyard. Rust has age and character…..rust is the “new” black….ha ha! I didn’t talk to anyone about the cost of these large and wonderful creatures. My guess is that they are expensive….I wonder if I could rent one? None-the-less, if I come home with a 14ft tall dinosaur, not only will I provoke strange looks from my next door neighbors, but I’ll scare away all bird life in the area, traumatize our own house cat, and risk 11 years of marriage to my wonderful wife attempting to justify my purchase. If in the area, stop by and take a peek at these rusty giants from south of the border.

    A 14ft tall dinosaur might scare your bees away.

    Interesting stuff! Hey Dred, your thoughts at the end on taking home a dinosaur were quite funny…
