The sculptor’s website appropriately lists this piece as a “Gateway to the community.” Flor de Vida is located at the entrance to Sugar Hill Ranch, an exclusive neighborhood on the north side of Lake Arcadia. Translation is flower of life.
According to the website, the stones for this piece were quarried over 100 years ago, and collected from surrounding counties to be used in this piece. The dimensions are 84″H X 72″W X 18″D.
Two stone pillars about 4 feet apart form the vertical supports for the stone crossbeam at the top. A semi-circular blueish green glass piece sits on top of the horizontal stone beam. A circular bronze piece hangs from it, with a blueish green glass Y built into the top section of the circle. The hanging circular piece is centered between the two vertical posts. The entire piece is set on a rectangular concrete foundation.
