12" x 16" Pastel on PastelMat Original: $150; prints available in store It's long been suspected that chickens are direct descendants of dinosaurs, but new research based on a 66.7 myo skull published just 2 days before this piece was completed concluded “that modern chickens and other fowl are living fossils, hardly modified since the days of the dinosaurs". The researchers gave the ancestral bird the scientific name Asteriornis maastrichtensis along with a pet name: the Wonderchicken.
