Marras also recently wrote on Instagram, “I love this photo taken in the rain – the beads of rain rolling off their son of Seattle – fitting . What an experience it was in Seattle at the @mopopseattle . Deeply rewarding . It was a great honor to work on this piece for @vickycornell and donated to the city of Seattle. Huge thanks to all that worked on it . My scanning model @casey__mcauley , Fred Kwan at alchymia Fx, @justin.raleigh and @fracturedfxinc , @vincentvandykefx , @carllyon_art , art tech ( installation), and of course the folks @art_bronze_inc .
