The Fish

Made of Mexican orange alabaster, the fish undulates through the stone as if it were swimming. When a bright light is placed behind the fish, the alabaster appears to be glowing like fire. Larger than life in every way, the Fish is a one-of-a-kind piece of sculpture that can never be exactly duplicated.

T Bone

T Bone is reputed to be the largest orange alabaster steak in the world. At a weight of 126 pounds, T Bone rests on a huge soapstone platter also carved by Culverhouse.

Culverhouse says, "It was originally going to be a fish but when I started polishing the stone to find out where the grain was, I realized it looked like a piece of meat. So after taking a second look, I thought, T Bone! I had to carve the platter because I couldn't find one big enough to put it on!"

His Bill Can Hold More Than His Belican

This alabaster pelican is a three-dimensional rendering of "The Pelican" that was immortalized in the poem by Dixon Lanier Merritt (often incorrectly attributed to Ogden Nash):

A wonderful bird is the Pelican,
His bill can hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week;
But I'm damned if I see how the helican.
