Description:

This sculpture marks the entry to Harbor Village Square at Mary Ellen McCormack Housing. On either side of the walkway, successive super-sized waves, shaped from blue-toned galvanized steel, break into froth as they crash against the huge granite blocks representing a breakwater. Noiselessly, Waves reminds viewers of the sounding sea nearby.
