America the Eagle

Species: Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) 

Debut: Carnival, 2014

Art Bike Biography: America, our eagle tricycle was inspired by the Krewe of Kolossos’ annual July 4th parade.  A celebration of the birth of America and the principles of Kolossos.  Each year, the Krewe of Kolossos celebrates its coronation of their new king and queen along the banks of Bayou St John.  The event welcomes all to paddle around the majestic Bayou St. John with decorated boats and patriotic costumes.  Several local artists assisted in elevating this sculpture to new creative levels including painter/sculptor and Green Eyed Gator Gallery owner, Shannon Atwater with impressive lighting effects by local film maker  Allison Hilder.

America was constructed using repurposed building supplies including foam and papier mache.
