This abstract sculpture transcends time and space as it rises toward the final frontier. The lofty lines, soaring toward the heavens, echo ships at sea and ships in space.
The artist fused nautical and aerospace themes to convey the universal voyage of mankind and the sense of exploration that drives us. A time capsule sealed in the sculpture holds notes and mementos from Waynesville citizens, to be opened in 2086.
