The effigy provides event participants with an opportunity to appreciate and interact with Maine’s coastal wildlife. The effigy consists of a large clam perched on top of an elevated structure. Participants can climb to the top of the structure, sit inside the comfy interior of the clam and admire the view of the surrounding playa from above. There are also several “surprises” for the participants to discover while inside the clam.
If participants prefer a more lifelike clam interaction and some solitude they can choose to relax inside the small clam. The small clam has the ability to open and close, though doing so will require collaboration with other event participants. There are also several inviting hammocks located throughout the effigy for participants to rest in.
