Ironically, the solar-aligned group came from a 62-ton, 40-foot long steel tube, part of equipment used at the U.S. Steel plant to make sections of the first Trans-Alaska oil pipeline. Los Angeles Fabricator Chris Ramirez hand cut interlocking figures from the 2″ to 3″ thick steel using an oxygen and acetylene torch. Aligned to the Equinoxes, spaces between the figures indicate the East/West sunrise/sunset points. See details.
