Mama and Baby Bones

Recycled Metal Sculpture
These Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs made their debut outside the Neville Public Museum in 2002. Later named Mama and baby Bones, these sculptures have become emblems of the Neville's mission and identity. Like the Neville they are products of cooperation, generosity, talent and community support.

The sculptor, Don Debaker, was a boilermaker turned artist, [sic] who fused his love for art and his welding skills by making bird and butterfly sculptures. Inspired by his find of a large industrial-sized chain, perfect for a T-Rex backbone, Debanker began work on his first dinosaur.
