The Last of the Titans

His unceasing creations from clay
Make a beast-animation ballet
Forehead's horned and one-eyed,
Things were born and they died,
Life unleashed by the patience of Ray.

Long live Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013), master of stop-motion monster animation. Shown here are the Cyclops and dragon from The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad (1958).
