Technical design for a sculpture of this size typically starts at what most viewers would consider the end – transportation of the finished sculpture to its installed location. Because of its size and the intricacies of its construction, Cut Throat Trout presented a potential challenge at transport. MGA worked with an aeronautical engineer to design a special frame for the sculpture with both a display and a transport position, resulting in a trouble-free arrival and install at its permanent location.
