The sculpture stood in the shade by the trunk of a mature tree. It depicted a woman or girl wearing a burka while riding a skateboard. The identifying sign was by the front wheel of the skateboard.

A closer look at the body of the "Burka Boarder" sculpture. Notice how the metal was slightly bent to create the illusion of fabric.

The face of the "Burka Boarder" sculpture lacked detail as if a veil or a mask of some sort obliterated that face detail. The hood was also ambiguous. It could also have been a football helmet or a motorcycle helmet.

The feet and sketeboard of the "Burka Boarder" sculpture. Notice how dirt and pieces of fall leaves have gathered around the feet and wheels. Also notice how the hem of the garment showed signs of rust.
