Whale tail sculpture to return to Vermont town
RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont road will soon provide residents with a new whale-watching opportunity.
Valley News reports sculptor Jim Sardonis is building two new whale tail sculptures to replace the original ones that stood along Interstate 89 in Randolph before they were sold nearly 20 years ago.
The new sculpture, “Whale Dance,” will be cast in bronze, and it will be more intricate and 3-feet taller than the original.
It will mark a recreational trail system on newly conserved farmland.
The original granite sculpture, named “Reverence,” was installed in 1989 and later moved to its current location in South Burlington.
The new sculpture will be set in the new location in early spring or summer of 2019.
