Portal of Evolution, by Bryan Tedrick

It was fun to climb into the small nest at the top, and the butterfly was slowly turning with the wind.­

Portal of Evolution is a sculpture based on the female reproductive system.­A portal is formed with petal like steel plates from which spring fallopian tubes and ovaries.­Emerging from the top is a kinetic butterfly with a seat in the center for passengers.­ Overall dimensions are 26' tall x 32' wide.­ Materials are steel and stainless steel.­
