Organic shape in a nature setting, in harmony with the gardens, interacting with the roses in the summer and a focal point in the winter.

Additional Information

The sculpture was commissioned by the Dundee/Memorial Park Association with a gift from an anonymous donor. The artist chose the name Ascension because it felt like the sculpture was still evolving and it would keep growing larger and larger, rising to a monumental state.
