147 hands is about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.910 times that amount.
(based on comparable bone measurements, height to head)
Dinosaurs in the genus Brachiosaurus had an estimated height (at the head with neck fully extended) of up to 130 hands. A resin cast of the first Brachiosaurus specimen, owned by the Field Museum in Chicago, is currently on display at the O'Hare International Airport.
