Though no longer in existence, the unique characteristic of this sculpture is that it can still be built to the same specifications of the artist without the artist present. Friends of Lake Anne Village Center still has the blueprint of this sculpture by Gonzalo Fonseca, providing the exact materials, sizes and method of building it. In fact, this sculpture was repaired once in October 1977 to make it safer for children to play on and around. However, due to a lack of funds and a focus on newer projects, this undertaking has not been initiated once more in the years since it was officially torn down.
