'The Sun' at Chihuly Garden and Glass
The Chihuly Garden and Glass museum is located at the base of Seattle's Space Needle in the lower Queen Anne section of the city. One of the most dramatic sculptures in the garden is "The Sun," which measures sixteen feet in diameter. Chihuly's influence was the Pacific sun, which he sees as "an explosion of yellow and orange" rising out of a dark Earth. The Earth is represented by 4,500 plants of black mondo grass.
