Artist Paul Saviskas, Turtles Three original sculpture now on display at the Panama City Center for the Arts in historic downtown Panama City, Florida
"Na Honu Ekolu" (The Turtles Three) is one-of-a-kind stainless steel sculpture and one of the largest pieces created by Paul Saviskas. Paul spent hours swimming with sea turtles at Punalu’u Black Sand Beach on the Big Island of Hawaii to capture the incredible detail and movement that you’ll experience while viewing this sculpture.
The piece stands over 8 feet and weighs over 1300 pounds. It was painstakingly crafted over a 2-year period. 316 grade stainless steel was used to create this piece - it will withstand oceanfront and even submerged installations. In addition to the wonderfully detailed sea turtles, the piece includes corals, starfish, pencil sea urchin and an arch.
Paul has been creating stainless steel art for over 30 years. His magnificent tropical floral designs that grace on gates, entrance ways, and railings found on many homes on Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island. His sculptures can be found at Hanauma Bay, Chinatown, Kapiolani Park, and the Zoo in Honolulu.
