MIGUELITOS MEXICAN RESTAURANT, TAMPA, FL
Parrots were popular pets in ancient Mexican Indian civilizations, and they were one of the earliest and most popular luxury goods amongst traders. The parrot spirit animal is a message of celebration. It's a happy expression of all the good things that are happening in your life, and the good things that you have yet to experience. It symbolizes the everyday beauty that you possess and which you are surrounded with when you enter the restaurant.
One of the most serene pieces we have ever made from bronze and black steel. The beautiful Cebia tree of Puerto Rico is the centerpiece for not only the interior of their restaurant but also stands tall as the entry door handle to the restaurant.
These were done in collaboration with Taide Scape. We fabricated 5’ tall hollow letters, made of aluminum and powder coated in a copper powder coat color, that Designer Patricia Thompson then filled in with petrified moss. Unfortunately, the restaurant never opened.
Apparently, there is a list of 100 most photographed doors in America going around ... this set of doors is on the list. If you find the list DM us here. Large Cogs covering the front door w/ a multi color Faux finish Application.
