THE EVERGLADES GATOR

A large bronze sculpture of an alligator with its head in the air and mouth open sitting by water.

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.
