Florida artist Gil Watson was contacted by a couple living in Homosassa to get some ideas on what to do with three cedars that had been damaged in Hurricane Urma. The trees were located on the canal at the bottom of their yard. The root system of the trees had integrated into the sea wall so it would be difficult to try to extract these trees.

Artist Gil Watson thought it would be a great idea to bring the local nature and wildlife into this carving. So he chose a theme based on dolphin with mullet and redfish (all of which swim in the canal below the sculpture). Gil Watson began this project by using a chainsaw to rough out the sculpture. He then used an angle grinder to get into the smaller places. For the finer details, Gil used hand chisels and finally sanded the pieces.
