Thanks for this. It is now on my "Bucket List" as I love shrimp and "Models".
What type of wood/timber did he use on the models?

I used to do the Shrimp Festival (I am a copper sculptor) every year until some drunk broke into my booth one Saturday night and peed all over my carpet. It's a great shrimp/beer/music festival, but a lousy art festival!

Very neat. I like the open end bone and tire iron tail.
Looks like a lot of fun and exhausted is understandable.

Funniest part was when we put her on the swim platform one of the ladies on the dock looked at him and said without thinking "Oh, he's adorable, look where his nuts are!"

[His eyes are made of large nuts with glass embedded]

Brought the place to a standstill.
