Selected as one of the Best public Artwork for the Annual 2004-2005 Art in America
The artwork is centered on a sapling grown from an acorn harvested from the 500 year old Austin Treaty Oak. Five rings chart the size of its leaf canopy for the next five centuries, each ring representing 100 years of growth. A spiral of boulders, a moon eclipsing a sun, a circling mist and blue light create a landscape from the past and from five centuries in the future.
