BASE DESIGN: There are several ways to design the base:
1) Kinetic – Rotating: The base can designed so it could comfortably accommodate a circular sitting area for the wary visitors, while slowly rotating them and the sculpture according to the prevailing wind.
2) It could serve as CLOCK, by being clock-motor rotated 360 degrees per hour – with an appropriate hourly chime, bell or melody as well as color changes of the powerful illumination at night. It can also be used as a SUNDIAL, indicating time and season on circles inlayed in the surrounding floor area.
3) Alternatively the rotating platform can be at the top of a fixed tiered circular sitting and rest area or a circular traffic island.
4) WATER - It can also be centered in a FOUNTAIN, a pond a lake, or river. In the water based version, you will not see the submerged base, which will rotate the sculpture according to prevailing winds and water-flow.
