Eihei Sculpture permanently installed

Just finished installing Eihei in Mount Dora, FL last week. Met some new people, picked some oranges & grapefruits. Eihei on his pedestal is 5'4" tall & approximately 1100 lbs.

Looks great Carl. You continue to impress me with your engagement of organic form. How was the road trip? I'll be dragging a 2500 ponder to Virginia this year. Will wave to you as I pass by.

Re: Eihei Sculpture permanently installed

Evald, I cheated. Sent the sculpture & pedestal by common carrier, flew down, rented a car & stayed 2 full days in the salubrious Mount Dora. Highly recommend it.

1800 mile round trip driving the pickup/1 week spent driving down & back & one day to install. Versus 2 hour plane ride down & 2 hours back, day to install & day to see the mysteries of FL, then back home. 3 days spent instead of 5. Best of all it was cheaper (in real dollars & time) to fly & ship sculpture commercially.

Depending on where you are going in VA, stop in. Am only 20 miles north of Winchester - rt off of I-81. PM me if you are interested.

Yes, great presence there. I love the angle of that last shot the most.
