A few months back, I became fascinated with an oversized coquina stone at our condo complex and Coquina” was born! This is a 12×12 acrylic on canvas. (Framed to 16×16) and it’s on sale right now for $85 (+$10 shipping and handling anywhere in the Continental US) Please contact me at, Deborah@DeborahBoydGallery.com if you are interested in purchasing this original work.
A little history:
The one above is located within our condo complex. It was one of the largest I’ve seen – It stands about 7′ tall; 5′ wide and weighs about 13,000 pounds. With a little research, I found that these stones are between 12 thousand and 2 million years old. The perfectly cylindrical holes are not man made – they are formed naturally.
A century ago, the rocks were used to make many of the old buildings you see in St. Augustine and the Sugar Mills in the Daytona Beach area. Some are still used as natural seawalls today. We were fortunate that many of the larger ones, like the one above, were saved when they excavated for homes and buildings. They make beautiful, natural sculptures.
