I don't think he had it made, it was probably one of these:this is nothing new. funny it involves another dinosaur though. Used to be a gas station near a fruit stand in Dixon,ca. The owner had a brontosauros statue (nicknamed Dixie) made that looks vaguely in size to the one in the story, it sat for what had to be at least 25 years in the same spot with a little wire mesh fence around the outside. When he closed shop and sold it , (lots of people wanted it) the winning bidder ended up with the problem of not being able to have it in his yard. Apparently the original owner had listed it as a yard ornament, the city or county got involved (jerks) and stated it was too big to be called a lawn ornament for the new owner. I forget exactly what happened but I think they got away calling it an art piece after the right money moved around.
andA splintered 2-by-4 here, the rotted belly of a guitar there, half a ladder from a child's bunk bed here, Boland and his volunteers worked under basic ground rules: No saws, no rulers and no materials other than what was in the scrap pile.
Also, anything nailed into place couldn't be removed. And nothing was to be level or plumb.
