"Small Dolphin" is one of the many tree sculptures carved after Hurricane Ike destroyed thousands of trees on the island.

Small Dolphin Tree Sculpture

This sculpture is located in the fence line of the east side of 9th Street.  While the Pod of Dolphins was being carved across the street, the young man who lives here was sad because he was not getting one.  Sculpture Earl Jones surprised him by carving a small dolphin.
