dimensions of the sculpture: 16"x16"x21"; weight: 16lb

 
 

Fishermen and boaters know the pelican well. Having received a free meal, the pelican will return day after day to accept someone's gracious hospitality. In many marinas the pelican is as natural a sight as boats and sunshine.

A close-up of the finished piece cast in bronze shows the variegated patina finish. The piece is both elegant and accurate in its representation of the pelican.
