The work consists of three large granite slabs (30 50 tons each) quarried in the Cascade Range and transported by barge and train to their present site. The slabs were placed in a row along the narrow waterfront park, one lying adjacent to a five sided concrete plinth, another resting against an angular four sided plinth, and the last resting atop a three sided plinth. Visitors are able to view the work from a path which traverses its length.
