An associate professor of biochemistry, human genetics and molecular biology, Allan Drummond recreates ancient trilobites using bronze. A few years ago, Drummond started to turn his extensive research on prehistoric sea creatures and fossils into detailed computer renderings. The results were then 3D printed and cast into bronze.
Many of his sculptures are inspired by creatures such as trilobites that existed for millions of years before they became extinct almost two centuries ago. However, he still creates modern day insects like the large-eyed jumping spiders and praying mantises.
Drummond has had several exhibitions to showcase his work. His pieces are amazing with the extra bonus of being also educational. These creations give us an opportunity to see in our own eyes insects that are long gone. Drummond posts pictures of his work on his Instagram page. You can see most of his work there.
