Meet David's sculpture menagerie, you'll swear they're real

FORGET Jurassic World.

David Joffe, the genius behind Natureworks, creates life size fibreglass animal sculptures you'd swear were the real thing.

Now locals will have a chance to see some of them at Norco Primex 2015.

Originally trained as a museum preparatory at Queensland museum, these days Mr Joffe's passion is for creating sculptures for zoos, aviaries, theme parks and more.

His prized collection includes literally hundreds of animal, bird, reptile and frog castings, and original sculptures of trees, water lillies, dinosaurs, giant crystals, sharks, and fossils.

It was Mr Joffe who was commissioned in 1993 to exactly replicate the original face of Luna Park in Sydney.

Natureworks also built the Mountain, Giant Tumblebug, domed minarets and many of the other hero features for the park.

Visitors can also see Mr Joffe's work at Sea World on the Gold Coast where he developed An Arctic Summer, the habitat of Polar Bear Shores.

While he won't be bringing all of his amazing works to Norco Primex, Marc Jackson of Fairfax Rural Events said the public would get a taste of Mr Joffe's creative art.
