Artwork Type: Sculpture
Description: Five elements make up this sculpture next to the South Platte River near Denver's founding site. A book sculpture near a playground has quotes from the mid 1800s about miner's dreams, Native American visions and settler's pipe dreams. Then, there is a set of boulder chairs with womb-like and other niches. In the playground itself, three animals are assembled from river boulders with carefully mortised joints but with minimal carving. Viewers have to use their imaginations to complete the animals.
