Long Description:
These kinetic wind sculptures were created by Lyman Whitaker (there is also a nearby shop if you are interested in buying your own).

This specific wind sculpture is actually composed of several different structures together in a group known as a "Wind Garden."

He creates wind sculptures using copper, steel, and stainless steel.
The wind sculptures pictured above are mostly made of copper.

I think my favourite one is the double helix sail.

I hope you enjoy this artwork as much as I did the first time I saw it.

Take a video so you can enjoy this moving piece of art from home.
