The  prehistoric birds earliest ancestor, was a dinosaur. When I was a child I liked to read about dinosaurs. Archaeopteryx was discovered in 1861, and no I was not a child then! This was the first feathered dinosaur ever found, but paleontologists were very clear, these prehistoric birds were not actually birds, they were dinosaurs with feathers. Dinosaurs went completely extinct, and no one knew what birds evolved from. I thought there might be a connection here that was being missed…

Turns a few decades later it is discovered that Dinosaurs are not Extinct after all. I have created this serigraph as my interpretation of an avian comment on the idea that dinosaurs went extinct. Living dinosaurs today, also known as ‘Birds’ say, “What do you mean we went extinct? It had wings and feathers, it could glide. Sure it wasn’t exactly like us but come on, you couldn’t see the resemblance?”

Tyrannosaurus-Rex is on the same branch of the Evolutionary Tree as our humble Chicken. Guess that puts the, ‘which came first the chicken or the egg,’ riddle to rest once and for all, the egg wins by a few million years!
