This inside-painted hand-blown glass piece continues an ancient art technique prized by collectors. The artist, using a variety of miniature curved- and bent-handled brushes, painstakingly paints every minute detail on the inside of the glass through the opening at the top. The design is outlined, and each color is applied. The entire process for each ornament takes about two days. No two pieces are alike.
The scene on this ornament showcases Apatosaurus from the Jurassic segment in Rudolph Zallinger’s famous dinosaur mural The Age of Reptiles, which overlooks the Great Hall in the Yale Peabody Museum.
