The sculpture chosen by the jury to remain was this one:
Not the one we would have chosen but if you think of it as a palmetto frond instead of a sunset, it does fit into the landscape. Its permanent location hasn't been chosen yet.
Purchase price : $30,000.
People's choice, first place went to the sea turtle. My photo doesn't do it justice. It's a sea turtle, which this area is known for, swimming under water with the Carolina moon in the background.
It's gorgeous and I really wanted it to be the one to stay.
Second went to "Hanging". I think that is hanging as in "hanging out".
Notes from the artist say the purpose is to "provide the community with a place to meet, rest, play, or think."
I'm wondering if the artist has ever sat on a tractor seat. They are not very comfortable and conducive to hanging out!
Third place went to "LoveArch". It would look nice in a courtyard with a door behind it, I think.
