The sculpture was inspired by an article Jones read on the development of the screw; with its inner and outer spirals. The sculpture's inner spiral seems to move slowly upwards; its rotation caused by the force of the water. The controversy which surrounded the sculpture (Too abstract! Too expensive! etc. ) was quickly settled and Spiral Gesture is now a symbol of the city.

If you look up the street to the right from where we are standing now in front of the the galleria, you could probably see the sculpture!
