The sculpture's arms moved gracefully under the force of the wind blowing in from the ocean a few miles distant. It was mounted on a low hill in front of rental apartments.

The sign describing this sculpture was on a base that showed serious need of protection from rust.

Overhead the fog blew in. That same wind caused the rectangular arms of this sculpture to pivot smoothly and separately.
