The Silver Plow


The Silver Plow sculpture

The art work refers to Chico’s history as an agricultural community by abstractly indicating a plow driver, a plow, and a team of horses.
Note: The steel rods in the Dwydag post-tensioning system (usually used in the mining industry) which support the basalt columns are under 190,000 pounds of tension.
