Big flower pot.

Giant Flowerpot Water Jug

Featured in the center of the 5th Avenue Community Garden is a flower sculpture designed and created by Michael Hart. Steel leaves at the top of the giant plant collect and funnel rain water into a 55 gallon drum hidden inside the cinderblock-and-steel pot that forms the base of the statue. Gardeners who rent plots can dispense water for their plants through the spigots at the bottom of the plant's pot. The sculpture is approximately 15 feet tall. [Trudy, 08/30/2018]
