The present reconstruction is based on Dr. Irsings finds in the Levant and the region around Nippur from 1937.
Based on the existing material, a size of more than 5 meters was assumed, further investigations could not be made due to the unknown digging site.
The archeologist has disappeared under mysterious circumstances since the war.

I always enjoy it when you paint bones in pixel art. Amazed at the value transition and accuracy with pixels, and of course it just looks bad ass! Great Piece!

Now this is quite the interesting surprise! Will we be seeing more of these strange fossils in the future?

Cyangmou's avatar

Not sure what the next personal art projects will be.

Perhaps an antediluvian dragon next?

I do love its zoology-book-plate style, and the comparison with an average human. Also the design, with thicker leg bones and lower spine, and a greater number of toes, make sense, in order to support its weigh. It all adds feasibility to the artwork.

I'd assumed the extra polydactyl digits were meant as a reference to six-toed biblical Gibborim.

dlambeaut's avatar

Okay... I didn't know that reference, thank you! I opted for a more biomechanical explanation for the polydactyly, but the folkloric, or cultural, one is relevant too.

Thanks, glad you appreciate the details :)

Very nice inclusion of the 6 digits on each limb just like in recent giant sightings.

If by 'recent' you mean, 'literally the only feature that they were said to have in the Biblical works besides being large,' then yes.
