    Default Hyper-Realistic Turtle Sculpture

    Hi everyone!

    I thought you guys might appreciate my turtle sculpture, being the reptile lovers that you are! I just finished him a few days ago and he was finally installed today. This big guy is an Eastern box turtle that I sculpted for the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center. It measures 28"x32"x18" and is made of stoneware clay, acrylic, glass eyes, blackboard paint, and chalk. This piece takes into account that each Eastern box turtle shell is uniquely patterned. By encouraging children to engage with this piece and design their own patterns with chalk on the sculpture's carapace I am hoping to foster an interest in the animal, and eventually a concern for this threatened speciesí longevity.

    Hope you enjoy I'm open to any critiques or suggestions for future pieces
