It weighs 7,000 pounds. The spoon is 52 feet long and 29 feet high, and the cherry alone weighs 1,200 pounds. A fine stream of water--just enough to make the aluminum cherry gleam--flows over it from the base of the stem. A second stream sprays from the top of the stem over the cherry and down into the spoon and the pool below. In winter, the snow and ice that accumulate on the sculpture change its character.
