The dinosaur, which goes by the name of Luna Park is the creation of artists Ivan and Heather Morrison. It is part of their current exhibition called An Unreachable Country: A Long Way To Go. The artists may not have envisioned the accompanying kites in their original concept. Yet the two disparate items go together quite uncannily - as if they were made for each other.
You can read more about Luna Park and how she came to be on Southsea Common in our original artlicle about her by clicking here.
We very much regret to inform you that on the night of 30 September 2010, Luna Park was destroyed by fire. You can read about it HERE.
