Hohokam figure in laser cut steel ~

This impressive steel sculpture is one of the public art pieces that are dotted throughout the Julian Wash Greenway. Bottom photo is the piece in situ. For this figure, Chris Tanz was inspired by images on a 1,000 year old Hohokam ceremonial bowl. This 94-acre park will eventually be part of the "Greenway" that will encircle Tucson. See yesterday's post for a link with the full story.

  1. Great steel sculpture of one of the Hohokam People! We have still so much to learn about them.
