Pearl

Bronze Sculpture titled Pearl

pearl fred dobbsThree years in the making, Pearl made her debut at the Castlegar sculpture walk in the spring of 2015, and later that same year won the prestigious peoples choice award at 'Sculpture Splash'.  Inspired by an abalone shell found at Heaundea beach in South Korea, Pearl developed from the question, where do Mermaids come from?  The sculpture portrays a mermaid sleeping in an abalone shell and suggests that this is her birthplace.  Her name is derived from the notion that abalone produce pearls in nature. 

Pearl will be produced as a limited edition bronze sculpture, in four different hair colour patina options.  The choices for hair colour will be brunette, blonde, auburn and winter blonde.  Pearl measures 18"D X 24"H X 36"W and weighs 165 lbs.
