This sculptural entryway work is comprised of a main archway, a secondary archway, a sign frame, and three benches. The main archway is composed of six forged steel trees with copper leaves, rooted onto limestone boulders. The trees are interwoven to form a complex arch form. Each tree represents a different native species with the leaf forms and the bronze medallion at the center is an owl face. The foundation piers are faced with limestone flag, and the benches have steel bases and milled oak slabs for seats.
