The Managerie Grows

Our condo neighbor's wall has taken on a new 3 foot critter, a whimsical sea turtle named Seamus. Like the fish above him, Seamus is crafted of beer bottle caps along with other assorted brew container parts. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the green shell is made of flattened Seagrams Ginger Ale cans. All of this is mounted on a hand-carved wooden form, as is the turtle's head. Seamus is obviously an Irish Sea turtle with his Leprechaun Seagrams hat atop red hair. Our neighbor has amassed boxes of beer bottle caps saved by local establishments that now number upwards of 7,000. Next up, a sea horse!
