Jayne Charless Beck was a San Angelo resident artist, who passed away in 1993. In 1994 this bronze casting was donated by friends of Jayne Beck to the City of San Angelo.
It is an enlargement of a sculpture Jayne created earlier, and this enlarged sculpture was placed next to a pedestrian bridge close to the San Angelo Museum of Fine Art.
In this area, a freshwater mussel species produces lustrous pearls in many colors, famous since the time of the Spanish conquistadors.
