    This outdoor piece is fantastic. I brought my friend from Canada to visit. Thank you for sharing how it was installed. I began to like modern art a bit more!

    I was being driven through the city by my host and he drove past the civic center. I was amazed to come across this living breathing entity. I came back to India and haven’t stopped talking about it.
