As you can see, it's a very complicated structure

Interesting capture of the sculpture and from reading your link one understands that they can sit on the sculpture which is unusual for most sculptures. I like the low perspective of the opening shot with the inclusion of the people for a sense of scale.

I love the surreal simplicity of the OP. Well seen and captured.

OP is very well done and it's courageous to have included all that foreground.

Interesting sculpture. I like the OP which was done nicely.;-)

Most interesting series of the shell sculpture, John... :)
People are encouraged to sit on it and watch the sea.

Great indeed.

Hey old friend John! ;0) I've popped in for a little bit and didn't want to miss saying hello and checking out some of your works. GREAT as usual. This one caught my eye also because the OP looks like the Great Scallop is creeping towards the onlookers. lol Nice job, buddy. Miss this place. ;0)

The photos in comments are nice and very interesting, but totally love the OP, with the inclusion of the persons, their admiring pose and the sense of the place.
