Tree For Elijah - Carlsbad, CA, USA

This approximately 10 ft tall steel sculpture by the late artist, Italo Scanga, is part of Carlsbad's Art in Public Places Program.  Originally called Tree With Bird, it is one of a series of sculptures called Trees For Elijah dedicated to the biblical character, Elijah.  It is constructed of flat panels of steel mesh/grid, painted green, and features a bluebird bringing a piece of bread at the top.  Sculpted in 1998, it was gifted to the Carlsbad Arts Commission in May 2009.

Located in front of the Cultural Arts Office at 2955 Elmwood Avenue.
