A sculpture with a precast concrete culvert that is stained with a black and white color representing the surface of the moon in the exterior and the night sky and stars in the interior.
Inside the sculpture there is a concrete base to create a flat surface to walk into and a concrete bench to sit on and experience the interior colors and change of color lights.
A light source is projecting stars in the interior to create a whimsical experience from a distance and also for people to walk through it.
The piece is presented on top of landscaping rock surrounded by grass
