Dazzling Kinetic Sculpture At Rio Draws Crowds At Rio Olympics
American sculptor Anthony Howe’s work of art has shared center stage with the athletes of the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Placed strategically behind the Olympic cauldron, the giant kinetic sculpture moves elegantly and hypnotically, reflecting the flames from the cauldron in multiple directions.
The sculpture symbolizes the pulsing energy of the sun and the many directions people travel in the journey of life.
The sculpture is made of stainless steel, measures 40 feet in diameter, and weights 4,000 lbs. Located at the Olympic Boulevard near Candelaria Church, it has now become one of Rio’s must see attractions.
