Hellbenders Rock

Eastern hellbender
Colorado alabaster

20" W x 20" D X 12" H

Sometimes you just have to be patient with the stone giving you direction. It took over 10 years for this piece of alabaster to finally divulge what it was sheltering, a magnificent eastern hellbender salamander.

Private/Public Collection.  Installed at the NC Zoo in May 2018 in their newly renovated hellbender/native fish exhibit.
