Balancing Dolphins and Dolphin
Created for Henry
Block (H&R Block Co. LTD) and his wife Laura.
The dolphins are central
features to their ocean front home overlooking the straits of Georgia
in White Rock BC. A total of three life-size dolphins were created
for this installation. Two dolphins (not shown) were selected for
placement on a structural post situated in the living room line
of sight to the oceanview. They were sculpted and placed to appear
to be swimming, circling up the post. The 3rd dolphin, the 'balancing'
dolphin (shown here) was placed on a pedestal, again in line of
sight to the ocean, where its balanced design is allowed to rock
on its pectoral fins, moving gently in the sea breeze.
