"CARETTA, CARETTA" (Latin for Loggerhead Turtle)

This Sculpture was created from a life sized fiberglass non descript  Loggerhead Turtle design. 50 Naples Artists were chosen to create the art pieces. They were then auctioned and placed around the city. Caretta Caretta resides at the Entrance to the Conservancy of Naples
