While camping on a remote Baja Beach in Mexico, Pastorius found a pod washed up by the tide. This 1 inch seed pod had survived a storm, but was now part of the litter and wreckage on the beach. This seed pod has been identified as a “Deer’s Eye”, a symbol of good luck n Mexico.
This sculpture is a monument to the that little seed pod which survived the storm, pounding seas, burning sun, and intermittent winds of this rugged Baja Coast.
