This panel of granite art, in front of The Island Pub in Douglas, was created with 7 tons of granite from 14 countries. Artist R. D. Robinson said the work was a gift from the Pub to the residents for having such a remarkable community. It was finished July 3, 2012. It contains eagles, ravens, salmon, and other wildlife and scenery found in the area.
