Sonoran Seed Pods
Jeff Zischke

Scottsdale artist Jeff Zischke created a
series of sculptures based on the shapes
of seeds and seed pods of the Sonoran
Desert trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. The
individual sculptures are placed along the
3/4-mile hiking trail at the George ‘Doc’
Cavaliere Park in Northern Scottsdale.
Experience a 3D model of one of the
Sonoran Seed Pods in your own home and
step through a portal that will magically
transport you to the Frank Crerie hiking
trail, in 360 degrees, with augmented reality.
