A dynamic, kinetic/wind sculpture, with seven colorful layers each set in motion in opposite directions depending on the direction of the leaf/pod shapes on each layer. The artists’ inspiration comes from a quote by explorer Captain Frederick W. Beechy, who in 1825 described the view of the area now known as San Mateo as, “a wide country of open meadowland, with clusters of fine oak trees.”
