Baja Seed

Baja Seed

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.

Created in 1982.
