Summary:
A playground sculpture that is a fantasy merry-go-round, painted red-orange. The circle of the turning platform is echoed in other circles in the sculpture, and by arches which extend beyond it like huge spider legs with round feet. A weathervane is attached to the middle of the center pole and each of its four arms end in a small circle outlined in blue.
