If you are on Grand Cayman, a visit to Old Man Bay will bring solitude and biiig animals concrete.

Located between the main island’s North Side and East End, the private residence and concrete sculpture garden of David Quasis, Davinoff, seemingly appears out of nowhere. Drive too fast on the rural neighborhood road and you might miss it.

Davinoff’s Concrete Sculpture Garden is home to a big Blue Iguana unique to the island, a giant crab and an octopus, among others. Most of the sculptures depict animals from around Grand Cayman, a place that Davinoff vacations in for part of the year.

Quasis began the park in 1999 with the smaller sculptures and then gradually introduced larger sculptures to the park.

On average, it took him about seven weeks to construct some of the larger concrete sculptures. Made on one concrete slab, the sculptures are coated in a mix of cement sand mortar.

The sculpture garden is located on private property and admission is free.
