Sea Star Line sends “Noble Ruler” to San Juan
March 8, 2010
Sea Star Line, LLC transported a prized piece of artwork on Friday for the new Wildlife Museum in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The “Noble Ruler” is a life sized sculpture of an African Elephant. It was commissioned by San Juan’s new Wildlife Museum. The Noble Ruler is made of bronze, and will be the sculptural centerpiece displayed in front of the museum. It weighs 9,800 pounds, stands more than 15 feet high, is nearly 11 feet wide, and 30 feet long.
“We are more than honored to have been selected for this mission,” said Frank Peake, Sea Star Line president and CEO.
“Noble Ruler is a treasured item, requiring special care and attention, and destined for a special place,” Peake added. “We are truly privileged to play a role in bringing this spectacular work of art to this beautiful new museum and the people of San Juan.”
Sea Star Line arranged for its Spectrum Logistics subsidiary to secure the Noble Ruler in Aurora, OR and carefully transported the statue over 4,000 miles. The sculpture was delivered in Jacksonville, Fla., then loaded onto special equipment and secured on ship’s deck for the journey to its new home in San Juan.
