Summary:
The environmental sculpture consists of wildflowers (symbolizing fertility of Flower City) with two timber pylons (symbol of Civilization) near the center, encompassed by a band of black walnut seedlings. Wide paths (representing Rochester's technology) cut through the flowers and intersect at two places near the center. Two circles of slag cinders mark the golden mean points in each pathway, from opposing directions.
