I was in San Diego this past weekend and encountered this unique sculpture named "Penelope" on my walk by Seaport Village. Local artist, Michael Stutz, immortalized "Penelope" from the Greek mythology "The Odyssey" for waiting 20 years for her husband Ulysses to return home from his journeys.
The sculpture is created by the weaving of bronze strips welded together. Stutz spent 3 years in New Orleans building Mardi Gras parade floats which had an influence on his life to create large scale sculptures.
From the back side, you can imagine what Penelope sees day-in and day-out.
