This objet d’art is posted for sale on the internet. The text below is a verbatim quote from the site. It is the opinion of the sellers of this ancient Shang Dynasty object that it is a representation of a dinosaur.

Ironically, we don’t neccessarily agree that it looks a great deal like a tyrranosaur, which is their surmise. They do have the benefit of having multiple views of the object.

Besides the tyrannosaur, we present the skull of the charonosaurus, a recent Chinese find which appears to have a similar skull shape and backwards pointed horn. Still, we admit that our speculations couldn’t possibly be less scientific. We leave it up to you to decide what it might be.
