Dinosaur Weathervane – Triceratops

Triceratops Weather Vane Walking


Our Triceratops Dinosaur Weather Vane is constructed of copper with brass horns. With its classic profile, it is an easily identifiable dinosaur and almost guaranteed to bring a smile or exclamation from any child glimpsing it against the skyline, and perhaps even an adult or two as well.

A fairly recent variation we are offering with many of our weathervanes is to use a half arrow tip and fletching rather than a full arrow tip and fletching with our weathervanes. The Tasmanian Tiger and Tasmanian Devil to the left shows an example of this newer style.

The advantage of this choice is the arrow no longer stretches out in front or behind the main subject of the weathervane, thereby increasing its size within the overall context of the design. For example, the Triceratop Weathervane shown here was made in the three-foot size, but the Triceratops itself is actually in the two-foot range, offering a much larger sculpture piece for the same price. . If ordered with the half arrow tip and fletching (see Tasmanian weathervane), the Triceratops would be fully three feet in length. Customers can specify their arrow preference when placing their order.

If you compare this Triceratops Weathervane with our Stegosaurus Weathervane you will get a chance to see the evolution of our weathervane making skills over the course of several decades. We last constructed this Triceratops in 1995 while the Stegosaurus was crafted in 2013. Anyone interested in ordering the Triceratops today would be offered a totally revamped and updated dinosaur, in alignment with the current skill level of our highly experienced artisans. And who says dinosaurs aren’t still evolving!

Dinosaurs were the dominant vertebrate animals of the earth’s terrestrial ecosystems for over 160 million years, from the late Triassic period (about 230 million years ago to the end of the Cretaceous period (65 million years ago). The term Triceratops, is derived from the Greek and literally means “three-horned face”.
