This T-Rex sculpture is one of 9 different sculptures, each one more awesome then the next. This giant among dinosaurs is perched forward on kind of a tripod with the third leg actually being a tail extending outward. It provides scariness and balance. The dinosaurs' head is turned to the side as though something caught its attention and its teeth are bared, ready for crunching bone and sinew. Its body is composed of metal pieces running laterally like a rib cage. Overall, this sculpture is very simple yet beautiful in form.

Peterson's Garage is a local business located on a remote section of the White Horse Pike (Rt. 30). It seems there are several garages and part businesses all very close to this one and all boasting their own original sculptures. These sculptures were made by mechanic and resident artist, Tom Peterson. This sculpture stands in front of the business near the sidewalk and off to the left on a small patch of grass and landscaping.
