The Structure of Love Is Indestructible
The Structure of Love Is Indestructible is a ten foot high glass and stainless steel sculpture by Ross Matteson, which debuted in Olympia, WA, USA on September 11- 15, 2013.
This 5 day event was co-sponsored by the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters and 41 individuals and organizations who rallied to our "crowd source" funding campaign. The public gathered with our featured musicians, speakers and sculpture. The Structure of Love Is Indestructible monument's many doves in ascending flight are etched into brilliant glass, supported by mirror finished stainless steel. To many, it helps explore uplifting ideas about recovering from tragedy.
