The Proud Peacocks and their base serve as a focal entrance to the north campus. The sculptor's goal is to intrigue and delight with enduring texture, unlikely spatial relationships and fragile balance. He includes details such as wind direction and wildlife subjects responding to one another. His sculptures are designed to withstand the test of being viewed from every angle, giving new pleasure to the same audience at each viewing. Presented to Upper Iowa Alumni in tribute to the fond memories of their years on this campus.
