The gear for the top of the sculpture's base has been installed, as shown in these photos below.
With advice from a structural engineer, Robert has developed a system for attaching the sculpture to the base in such a way that it will be extremely secure. Once the site is prepared, the base will be installed, anchored to the underground concrete block, and then filled with concrete.
Robert is currently fabricating steel templates to be used for cutting out the stainless steel plate with his plasma cutter. More pictures coming soon!
