A view of the sculpture from its south facing side. From this point of view it looked like a single piece of rock planted in the brick sidewalk.

Again, when viewed from its south side, the ball in the center of the sculpture appeared to peek out from behind.

Steel posts held the sphere in the center of the opening between the two stone halves.

The stone sphere seemed to float between the two stone halves. Despite the five tons of the sculpture, the sphere lent it a feeling of lightness.
