Sometimes I wonder if dinosaurs just happened to become popular in many people's childhoods, or if it's simply that dinosaurs are bound to be loved by kids. What is certain is that dinosaurs have been one of the most sought-after merchandise labels for years. This is true today, in the 90s, or even earlier. Like zombies and aliens, dinosaurs have always been a pop culture favorite in Europe and the United States, with ups and downs that just won't go away.

For our generation, the most iconic dinosaur craze was brought to us by the movies, with Jurassic Park bringing it to the forefront of mainstream culture in 1993, captivating many people with this artistically manipulated prehistoric creature. Now, we are still able to look back at these prehistoric giants. There is something uniquely fascinating about the role they played in pop culture.

Initial impressions

At first, dinosaurs were just skeletons of unknown creatures to humans. It was not until the 1820s that scientists began to study them systematically. Some folklorists believe that before then, dinosaur skeletons became the prototypes of mythical monsters, such as the fossils found in the Gobi Desert that became chimeras or griffins.

In 1841, after paleontologist Richard Owen gave it its official name, the creature began to appear in books and sculptures and other works of art. The most famous are the Brontosaurus sculptures in London's Crystal Palace Park, and some fictional depictions of its study and spread. As more dinosaur fossils were found, scientists gradually systematized and elaborated the classification of dinosaurs. The original dinosaur image also faded from view due to the incomplete fossils and the integration of features of modern creatures. With the emergence of these subdivided dinosaur images, the original Brontosaurus image and its sculptors left the limelight. With the death of the creator, only the original Brontosaurus is still on display at the Crystal Palace.

People's expectations

Even though scientists continue to use data to deduce restorations, no one can ever really dare to conclude exactly what the dinosaurs looked like. On this basis, the description of them can only be as hazy and uncertain as if they were in a fog. This vagueness naturally gives dinosaurs an innate artistic processing advantage.

However, while zombies are a product of fictional imagination, dinosaurs are not. The dramatization of dinosaurs in pop culture is both an effective communication and an inevitable distortion.

Consumers wanted them to be bigger, uglier and more ferocious, and businessmen were more than happy to put these creatures, which had long since lost their privileges at the Animal Protection Society, on the shelves. Over time, the public perception of the dinosaur image has long faded from the fact that it once existed in the world, more like an imaginary monster. The filmmakers found that instead of letting them be hunted and killed in a disciplined manner, the audience was more excited to see the two beasts tearing each other apart.

Fierce image

The next dinosaurs were closer to the familiar image - the first attempt at stop-motion animation of the classic Tyrannosaurus Rex vs. Triceratops was made in 1918 in The Shadow of Sleepy Hollow. Soon, the cute and silly look of the first dinosaur movie was left behind.

After the initial novelty wore off, the subject of dinosaurs fell silent for a while due to the Great Depression, World War II, and the perceived "pointlessness" of research. But after a decade or so, the rise of adventure literature brought dinosaurs back; after all, if there are undiscovered corners of the world, it's not surprising that there are surviving dinosaurs.

In this way, dinosaurs have always continued to sink and float in popular culture. When it began to disappear for a while, works such as "Atomic Monster," born out of a wave of Cold War nuclear fear, were able to bring it back.

In 1993, Jurassic Park, a science fiction film based on the novel by Michael Crichton, was released, combining monsters and disaster elements, once again bringing dinosaurs, which had been dormant for several years, to the forefront of mainstream culture. Jurassic Park

As with other popular commercial films of the period, dinosaur-related games sprang up after the movie swept the world -- whether they were Jurassic-related or not.



The dinosaurs of the Jurassic period survived from about 181 million to 169 million years ago, and as dinosaur fossils were gradually discovered, the dinosaur family grew even larger and various dinosaur images became familiar.
