According to the artist, the flamingo is one of the most iconic animals in Florida. “Even though its popularity and image graces innumerable pieces of memorabilia that claim to be from Florida, for years this beautiful bird has been thought to be non-native,” Mazzota explained. The giant interactive sculpture is meant to be interacted with, touched, and photographed. Its size is meant to place the focus on the animal, reminding people that they share the same home with it.
