This model was based upon one of the many full-size statues made by Elbert  H. Porter and displayed in the “Dinosaur Gardens” in back of the museum (see post cards and other collectibles, below). Indeed, Vernal is a kind of “Western USA capitol”  for dinosaurs, located near Dinosaur National Monument (Utah-Colorado).  Both Vernal and Dinosaur National Monument have both long been sources of myriad dinosaur-related collectibles.
