These floating Portuguese Man-o-Wars have strayed far from their home range, but serve as an ode to the Mountains-to-Sea Trail that passes near Waynesville on its 1,175 mile journey from the Appalachians to the Outer Banks.
The piece dates to the inception of Waynesville’s public art initiative, which featured rotating installations on a temporary basis. This piece was left in place by the artist and became part of the permanent public art realm.
