Ecosystem

Artist: Okuda San Miguel  
Medium: Sculpture
Location: Midtown Commons

The large-scale sculpture installation commissioned from internationally acclaimed Okuda San Miguel reflects Tampa and the surrounding environment.The animal world is represented by the birth of a sea turtle, a natural event characteristic of the Florida west coast, in which this balance between nature and civilization is achieved. Still being the place chosen by this animal to perpetuate its species every year.

The turtle is born among vegetation, represented by trees, and also among civilization, represented by a building surrounded by colorful characters, known as “soulkeepers” who in the artist’s imagination represent the protection we all need to live and develop in freedom.
