Description

Created by the artist team of Scott Constable and Ene Osteraas-Constable, this sculpture duo is made of glass mosaic, concrete and steel, and they celebrate a main a fundamental part of the marine ecosystem.

The orange fish is a rockfish and the silver fish represents Forage Fish, the prey or bait fish that include the anchovy and herring. Both types of fish can be found in the waters just off Ocean Beach, a few blocks away.

From the artists:
"These colorful sculptures are icons of the abundance that lies both in the library and in the ocean beyond. Uniquely sited within view of the Pacific Ocean, the Ortega Branch Library is a source of ‘abundant knowledge’, a place where people of all ages come to learn and grow. Likewise, the nearby ocean is a wellspring of sustenance, offering an ‘abundance of resources’ for both humans and animals alike."
