A statue of a flower reclined on its back. It was located on a low round platform in front of 33 Tehama. The plaza in which it laid was covered in dozens of large red polka dots.

The view of the sculpture looking out at Tehama Alley. The presence of a large seating area (as well as the presence of a guard) prevented folks from sitting on the sculpture.

A view of the back of the sculpture. From behind, it looks more abstract and less like a flower.
