Blow that conch shell: Davis Islands Pool

This cherubic little fellow sits blowing his conch shell at an entrance to the Davis Islands pool. Located across from the Marjorie Park Yacht Basin, the ornate, Roman style pool was part of the original plan for the islands as conceived by David P. Davis. Built in 1929, the pool is known today as the Roy E. Jenkins Pool.


  1. I'd rather see him blowing on the conch shell than doing something else into the pool!

  2. An interesting sculpture...looks almost fluid, like the white substance will drip and drip until the boy disappears!

    Have you ever blown into a conch shell and made a decent sound?
