    IVANA THE BLUE IGUANA
    In 2010, in collaboration with Leo Verret from Minnesota, the first large concrete sculpture was created in the front yard. People started stopping, I started chatting with them, I was hooked! Since then I add a major piece each year to the Park.
  8. RUDY & TRUDY AGOUTI

    Agouti, large rabbit/rat type rodents, are found on the island. Commonly called the Cayman Rabbit, they are still hunted by locals and still makes a good local rabbit stew.

    CAYMAN STINGRAY
    Practically everyone visiting Grand Cayman goes to StingRay City to swim with the world famous sting rays. This sculpture was done in 2001.
  13. SHARKIE
    SHARKIE
    In 2000 I made a 8' concrete shark and placed it in the sea behind a coral head for snorkelers to find. It was my intention back then to have an under water concrete sculpture park. The sting ray and eel were also in the water. Hurrican Michele hit the island in 2001 and the shark disappeared. The Park moved inland after that.
  14. ZOMBIE

    SHARKIE III
    In 2018 I decided on making a concrete Caribbean Reef Shark. I added a concrete Inner Tube as a prop for more exciting picture opportunities for children although I believe there will be plenty of adults also sitting in that inner tube. The shark's teeth were made from pieces of a conch shell.

What visitors say about the Park
  1. Testimonials: TripAdvisor 1
    “Pretty unique attraction and the price was right!!!” 5 of 5 starsReviewed July 9, 2015 Driving about 10 minutes north from the Wyndham Reef resort you will find Davinoff's Sculpture Garden on the right hand side. The owner has about 15-20 sculptures with Caribbean themes to reflect Island Life. There is a small parking area in front of the garden or most people pull over on the side of the road. There is no admission and was a good way to spend 15 to 30 minutes. The kids enjoyed taking funny poses with each of the sculptures. Visited July 2015 Less Helpful?

    “A celebration of the creatures of the island!” 5 of 5 starsReviewed February 10, 2014 Be sure to stop to see this gem on the North Side. It's the perfect spot for a photo shoot of you or the kids perched on a giant crab, a blue iguana, or a scorpion! The artist works hard to accurately represent local creatures. And speaking of local creatures - the sculptor is the rarest of them all. Hope he's there when you visit! Visited February 2014
