This sculpture bordered the water along the waterfront. It stood 12 feet (3.6 meters) tall and appeared to be a mosaic of ceramic tiles.

The flower stood atop a green stalk. Built of styrofoam covered with fiberglass, the flower was then tiled using pieces of stained glass. The effect was a glistening flower with a cruise ship behind. Both the ship and the butterfly were berthed.
