A new sculpture of an ancient fish

Last week we finished up the second part of a great project for the Hastings Museum. A 14 ft. long sculpture of Xiphactinus. It is paired with a sculpture, Owen Bissex and I previously produced a 27 foot long Tylosaurus. As is always the case, a big project like Xiphactinus can only be accomplished with the help of a great team. In this case my new studio assistant Jeff Compton brought a lot of fishy expertise and effort to the project. We also had extra help from Jo Kamm during the mold making and casting process. Please take a few minutes to watch the production and installation of this fantastic animal. I would also like to say thanks to Zoe Keating who gave me permission to use her amazing music for the film. www.zoekeating.com
