On /richard-attenborough-death-obituary/Sunday, the world learned that Lord Richard Attenborough had passed away at the age of 90, just 5 days before his 91st birthday. While he had many accomplishments as both a director and an actor, some remember him best for his role as John Hammond in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Paying tribute to the fallen filmmaker, director Colin Trevorrow has unveiled the John Hammond statue that will appear in Jurassic World. Take a look:

Doctor John Parker Hammond was the CEO and creator of Jurassic Park. He founded the company InGen and the Hammond Foundation.
It is not known to what capacity the John Hammond In memoriam statue will be seen in the upcoming sequel Jurassic World.
"Dickie Attenborough was passionate about everything in his life - family, friends, country and career. He made a gift to the world with his emotional epic 'Gandhi' and he was the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back to life as John Hammond in 'Jurassic Park.' He was a dear friend and I am standing in an endless line of those who completely adored him."
