Willis O'Brien Triceratops

Here's a fascinating photo (new to me) of  Willis O'Brien, SEG. with Marcel 
Delgado's stop-motion figure of Triceratops made for the aborted film, 
"Creation". To me, it is the finest stop-motion dinosaur ever created. I 
the figure still exists (mysteriously eluding the typical decay of its rubber 
body). Tragically, the only animated footage of it was lost during editing of 
"King Kong". The extant footage from "Creation" features another puppet. It's 
huge compared to more modern animation models. Its bellow was supposedly 
by grunting into a double gourd. DV
