Chris Emmanuel’s Bottlenose Dolphin - 11/30/10 03:02 PM
Keeping our Isla Bonita with bottle sculptures - it all began with a conscious mind of keeping the island clean that Chris Emmanuel got the idea of creating his first wonderful sculpture of a Spotted Eagle Ray made out of plastic bottles in March 12, 2010.
Chris’ first sculpture of a Spotted Eagle Ray took him about a month to collect the bottles and 20 hours to complete the sculpture and it has been sold! Chris managed to intricately weave 72 clear plastic water bottles together to form a magnificent ray and used the bottle caps as the sea creature’s spots.
Eight months later Chris has a new bottle sculpture to boast, a bottlenose dolphin. This sculpture took him a month to complete. He used 20 large – 1 liter plastic bottles, 48 small -500ml plastic bottles and 13 bottle caps.
