Long Description:
From a Pineapple Corporation Press Release:

The Pineapple Corporation is known for creating timeless custom and semi-custom homes that beautifully showcase architectural influences from around the world. At the company’s new community, Palermo, The Pineapple Corporation has installed hand-crafted kinetic wind sculptures by Lyman Whitaker from Taos, New Mexico in front of the entry monumentation to complement Palermo’s enchanting setting.

The copper, steel and stainless steel sculptures were hand-crafted at Whitaker Studio to symbolize creative energy and new opportunities, qualities Ash and his talented team at The Pineapple Corporation apply to every new home they build. Elements of the intricate sculptures move with the wind, creating a playful ever-changing work of art. According to Whitaker, his Wind Forest™ sculptures are designed to offer a comforting release from everyday life with their calm serenity and whimsical charm.

The majestic Wind Forest™ sculptures are located at the entrance median of Palermo, on Hodges Boulevard, south of Beach Boulevard.
