This sculpture was made to be part of the Art on the Llano project. Large outdoor sculptures are placed at major high traffic interchanges in Lubbock, TX. This sculpture will be in place for two years.


The scale, materials, and subject matter were taken into consideration for this commission.


A representative from TXDOT discussed scale, location, and related issues. He and a work crew assisted in the installation. Texas Tech University handled the honorarium payment of $4000. plus $500. for installation costs.
