This work was commissioned and realized with the support of the collector, who owns this park. At the center of the pool 41 bronze cones hold up irregularly shaped plates of glass. Curved aluminum segments arranged in concentric circles on these glass plates suggest the effect of a stone dropped into still water. This is a reference to quotation from the chapter on natural energies in Leonardo's Atlantic codex, Whose place of birth, the village Vinci, is about 1.5 ml away from this sculpture park. The glass sheets are mirroring the surrounding landscape, solid and transparent, they create a "frozen" space on the moving water surface.
