S'Cruz Sculpture: Oceanic Spiral

Somewhere along the way, Santa Cruz came up with this great idea of adding sculptural installations along Pacific Avenue. [Map of Sculpture Tour here.] I try to visit Bookshop Santa Cruz when I'm in town, and recently found time to enjoy this sculpture that's located right in front of the renown bookseller. A group of Hammerhead sharks encircles a spiral of tasty anchovies. Pacific Ave. at Locust, S'Cruz.

Oceanic Spiral

Here's a good article in the Santa Cruz Sentinel about Kirk McNeil, the metalsmith who created Oceanic Spiral.  McNeil has his own studio, Freedom Forge with a gallery, or find  some good photos of the sculpture on McNeil's Flickr page.
