Summary:
Abstract concrete and stone fountain sculpture of a bromeliad flower. The center of the flower rises from a rough-hewn limestone base. Three large petals emerge from the center. The petals are covered with ceramic tile mosaic. Six pistils rise out of the center of the flower and are colored dark blue-green, yellow, orange, burgundy and green. The sculpture and base stand in a shallow three-point fountain pool. The bottom of the pool has tile mosaic which reflects the concentric shape of the fountain.
