Sea Creature Sculptures

A collection of sea creature sculptures from around the world.

From my sculpture tour in Puerto Vallarta I learned that this seahorse was the first sculpture added to the city’s Malecon – it comes from the sculptor’s childhood dream of being able to ride a seahorse (Mexico).

It wasn’t until I got up close and realized that the mosaic tiles were full of details from old newspapers, paintings and documents containing the history of Belfast.
