THE EVERGLADES GATOR

Have you ever thought "How did he do that"? Here you get to follow a sculpture from the concept to the finished bronze.

 

The "Everglades Gator" was inspired on the banks of Lake Okeechobee in 2013. After a confrontation with a 13' bull gator, Geoffrey had the idea to create a life-size Florida Alligator in bronze so others could experience an up-close encounter with one of our native reptiles.
