It stood complete on my table for less than a day. At night I started disassembling it.

Here is the dismantled pterosaur.

Everything weighs less than one kilo. I had to make a box big enough to fit the head.

I found some space to place two other skulls and mandibles in the box. Everything weighs five kilos.

We are traveling to the First Brazilian Dinosaur Symposium, in Ituitaba, MG, Brazil.

Soon I will write a final post on this pterosaur, listing my sources, references, materials used, and listing all the related posts in chronological order.

A new exhibit for Guidraco

The exhibit The Imaginary Pterosaur was transferred to a new museum, for only four days (SESC Centro, Campina Grande, PB, Brazil) during a multicultural event that happens during Carnival. It is flying over a garden facing the audience. After this exhibit it will travel back to São Paulo.

Besides the skeleton, the exhibit also includes educational panels about pterosaurs and paleontology, and a section with photos showing the process used to build the model out of foam.

There is a pterosaur in the museum

At XIII Festival de Arte de Areia (Areia, PB, Brazil)

During the first two days, it was flying over everyone.

During the last two days, it was in a “taking off” position.

Guidraco will travel again!

The Imaginary Pterosaur was invited to participate in an exhibit during an art festival next week (13o. Festival de Artes de Areia, in Areia, PB, Brazil). So, one more time, the skeleton was unassembled. Now it can fit nicely in a small 60x20x25 cm box.
