Cast in aluminum and perched atop andesite columns ranging in height from 11 to 14 feet, three ravens are captured in flight. Each of the ravens is mounted on a bearing system and rotates gently in a strong breeze, giving the sculpture a kinetic element so that the birds constantly change their relationship with each other.
