CHICO, Calif. - A commissioned artist just finished a new sculpture for a Chico business.
The Tackle Box hired Sacramento-based artist Constantin Morari to carve the 14-foot tall alligator statue in front of its building to remember the Camp Fire.
The statue was made out of a log from the Camp Fire burn zone.
"We do emergency lunches for CAL FIRE. Yeah, we do emergency lunches for them. So the fire is kind of a big part of us," explained the bar manager, Jessica Rix.
Morari took five days to finish the carving.
The business chose an alligator because that is the Tackle Box's logo and is one of the most popular entrees.
