Creation of the sculpture took many hours of bending metal, fusing the armature together, painting, and placing the lucite balls inside the body carefully. When installed lights outline the armature, crown and front/back feet. Lights also shine inside the armature through the Lucite balls and shine through the feet. All the metal is painted gold and green. The sculpture stands approximately 6 feet tall x 4 feet wide.
The Prince of New York Waterways over looks the water. Photos are right after install before his lights and lily pad were put into place.
