Station #10 of the Route of the Friendship

In Sundial, a horizontal composition placed on a circular landscape predominates. Inside of it, seven cones of different shapes, some connected together like Siamese pieces, rise out.
Constructed of reinforced concrete standing 5 meters high, they are painted in different warm tones passing from yellow to orange, red and ochers.
How the conical shapes play off one another creates a sensation of movement and contradictory forces for the spectator passing through the area.
The central cone, for its position, is the one that receives the full force of the sun.
