above is a custom repousse copper weathervane which was designed to
function only as a sculpture. It is currently on display without its
cardinal letters. The design is a study of Paul Manship's 1925 sculpture
"Diana", but inspired by Augustus Saint-Gaudens 18 ft. tall
weathervane which topped Madison Square Gardens. For aesthetic reasons
the veil of cloth, necessary for downwind surface area was left off
the design. This swirl of fabric can be seen in Manship's original.
Saint-Gaudens similarly used a fabric motif to create the necessary
additional surface area, in order that the weathervane function.
This weathervane was featured in an article in Craft & Design, July/August 2009.
