Description

The circle of sacred smoke sculpture pays homage to the American people as a sign of world peace by artist Junkyu Muto. The statue is designed to help increase visitor understanding of the importance of the tower to over 20 native tribes. It is the 3rd of 7 works planned by the Muto around the world. The first two sculptures can be found in the Vatican City and Bodhi, India. The sculpture depicts the first puff of smoke from a pipe as it is lit.
