Part of the fun in traveling is the art and how it reflects the local culture. This statue provides a look at the surf craze on Florida’s Jacksonville Beach.
From the distance, the statues appear to be real. When a bit closer it is clear that they are statues. Located at Jacksonville Beach’s Latham Plaza the statues depict a woman brandishing a longboard and at her feet, a male surfer waxing his board.
After a bit of research I found that they are hand-painted bronze and donations from the J. Johnson Gallery and created by J. Seward Johnson.
