Description

Come face to face with Sue, the largest, most complete and best-preserved T. rex specimen in the world. Notice each of Sue’s bones resting in its own hand-forged metal bracket - for scientists’ easy removal during research.

The Kenyan bull elephants have been standing in fighting pose here since 1921. Each North West Coast Haida Totem Pole, located to the right of the picture, was carved from a single, red cedar tree in the early 1890’s.

Special note: The floor of The Field Museum is made of 300 million year old fossilized limestone.

Look and Find: statues in Stanley Field Hall representing Dissemination, Knowledge, Research and Record (not shown) and the handmade lion head medallions along the wall. Zoom in: view in close proximity the recreated Waxaklahun-Ubah-K’awil, or “18 Rabbit.” This Mayan deity is wearing a headdress made of plants, animals and supernatural beings.
