Sauropods? Or Blind Chance?
Either these ancient pieces themselves convince you that these artists had actually seen various types of dinosaurs that we now call sauropods--or they don't. Did these dinosaurs/dragons die out millions of years before man "evolved" or were they living "along side" man all along? Submitted for your approval...
