While the dinosaur lays on top of the furniture, the sense of dominance is misleading. Upon further inspection, IKEA supports the delicate fossil, giving the creature shape and a false sense of life and movement. This influx of antithetic, competing substances -- the natural wood of IKEA furniture infused with unnatural capitalistic consumption, bound to the organic bones of an ancient creature who's been twisted in a contrived position -- renders the viewer as uncomfortable as the dinosaur, himself.
