Canoe Wave

Sculptor Christopher Fennell built Canoe Wave, a waveform sculpture, by welding more than 50 canoes together. The work was created as a tribute to American explorers Lewis and Clark for the bicentennial of their expedition. The sculpture is 64 feet long and 24 feet high. The tribute extends out into a nearby pond, where canoes have been fashioned into two waterlily-shaped fountains.
