Description of Work

The sculpture "Shiva's Heaven" by Peter Hanson, was purchased and installed by the City in 1993. According to the artist, the sculpture was purchased with a base which was integral to the piece. Sometime prior to the year 2000, the city put in a new base to conform with the downtown plan. The artist did not want to have his name associated with the piece as it is currently sited. That might be why it is the only city sculpture without a plaque. The original effort looked like the photo on this web page:
