James Surls sculpture, Points of View, downtown Houston Market Square.
Points of View was installed as part of the Market Square Park renovation in 1991-1992.
Points of View is an abstract sculpture made of treated pine and painted steel and is mounted on a concrete base.
The sculpture rises from its base on five metal legs that merge to form spirals from which planks made of pine relate to the form of a pinecone. Twenty-five elongated, wooden planks protrude from the bottom and top of the spiral form. The protrusions at the bottom project out in a parallel direction, while the protrusions at the top project upward.
