Honoring local history, native stone, similar to the type used to build the historic Collin County Old Stone Dam that served steam locomotives traveling through the area over 130 years ago, will be a major component of the contemporary artwork. The sculpture also incorporates stacked glass, powder coated and stainless steel, representing the current dynamic and modern community.
