This is a life size bronze sculpture featuring indigenous marine life, displayed at the entrance of the Physician Center West at South Coast Medical Center in Laguna Beach, California.
Terry’s sculptures leave no doubt about his feelings for the ocean. Terry said, “Before creating this bronze I would often dive in Laguna’s once abundant kelp beds for artistic inspiration. My life-sized bronze of sea lions in kelp now serves as a memorial to undisturbed natural well being. Perhaps someday we will see kelp return to our shores.”
