Nelson Maniscalco’s Paleo Sculptures
Spending time studying archaeology and participating in dinosaur digs, Nelson Maniscalco learned that perfecting his artistry would only benefit from learning more about the species and becoming more hands-on with different scientific projects. These sculptures are considered to be anatomically accurate, which makes them even more spectacular.
Maniscalco’s work has seemed to have paid off, in that his art is highly sought after, and has been featured in museums internationally. His detailed artistry is supported by a breadth of experiences from his background in teaching, molding and casting, and hands-on involvement in paleontology.
