Claude Bell and John Ehn

Following on from those great Blackgang figures, i thought i'd do a little post on Claude Bell. Claude created the cabazon dinosaurs, just outside Palm springs in California. Along with these he was responsible for figures at Knotts Berry Farm and Calico Ghost Town. Claude had also created a lone figure of a trapper for Old Trapper's Lodge, before the owner, John Ehn, decided he could make them himself! read about it here. These now all reside at Pierce College, California (which i've posted about them before). Enjoy!
