I was driving in north Phoenix on Sunday when I discovered this unusual sculpture located in a very nondescript spot. I couldn't find any signs or information for it so I did some Google searching.
I found that this sculpture was commissioned by the city of Phoenix to be placed in a small pocket park that now covers a former well that was used many, many years ago. The sculpture was created by Barbara Grygutis of Tucson. Apparently there is a blue light at the base of this sculpture that lights it from within at night.
It is supposed to represent the varied path of water in the desert but, it reminds me of the "dust devils" we get in the dry southwest. Those happen when the wind whips up some dust in the shape of a tornado and sends it spinning across the desert floor.
