Prehistoric Giants

Step back in time when you visit Prehistoric Giants, featuring impressively enormous life-size sculptures by New Hampshire-based artist Bob Shannahan. This outdoor exhibition explores life from the prehistoric past through pieces created with various natural materials.

As you stroll through Science Park, be on the lookout for a towering Irish elk, a massive American camel, a powerful short-faced bear, and a mighty mastodon.

Artist Bob Shannahan has been making and exhibiting his animals in New England for the past fifteen years. They are an extension of his landscape work and his work with school gardens. Though primarily self-taught, he has studied at the New Hampshire Art Institute and the Boston Institute of Art.
