Philippe Pasqua t-rex

Erected on the banks of the River Seine in Paris earlier this year, artist Philippe Pasqua's Tyrannosaurus rex is even more terrifying than your typical reconstruction of the king of the dinosaurs. Why? Because he's made of several hundred gleaming chrome-plated bones, giving the magnificent beast a vaguely Terminator feel. Arnold Schwarzenegger's all-metal skeleton is scary enough as it is — a 12-foot tall T-rex is another story altogether. Standing behind the sculpture, the iconic Eiffel Tower rises off in the distance, letting you imagine that a futuristic race of cyborg fossils has descended upon The City of Light. Michael Bay, your $200 million budget awaits.
