This 20-foot-tall acrocanthosaurus is made out of twisted-together balloons. It was created over four days by Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle's company Airgami for the lobby of the Virgina Museum of Natural History.
airigami (headed by larry moss) has completed a 20-foot long acrocanthosaurus--a dinosaur from the early cretaceous period.
this is not the first time the team has built one of the mammoth creatures from their signature medium of balloons,

finished over the course of four days, the massive inflated beast is installed within the virgina museum of natural history (for as long as it will last).
the core team of marsh gallagher, TJ michael, phil cosmos and dee cosmos who realized the larger than life blow-up sculpture
were assisted by many helpers including elementary school students and museum staff.
