Long Description:
Family: Fundamental Unit of Society is an abstract sculpture by Sandra Forsey and Sydney Knight of Peoria, AZ. The sculptors donated the piece (through Ultimate Imaginations, Inc.) to Mesa's Permanent Sculpture Collection.

The Downtown Mesa website (visit link) describes the sculpture in great detail: "The background of this sculpture is red to represent aggression, violence, shame and anger, and the holes represents how society can become fragmented. The people in the foreground are blue to represent purity, cleanliness, calmness and security, and as a family unit they give society strength, stability and organization."

The sculpture can be seen 24 hours a day on the Southwest corner of Main St. and Mesa Dr. in downtown Mesa, AZ.
