This creative structure opens into a circle, attaches with magnets and then rotates like a kinetic kaleidoscope. Three panoramic desert vista photographs showcase the Santa Catalina mountains of Tucson, Arizona. Iconic Saguaro cactus stand proud, surrounded by prickly pears and teddy bear chollas. Another panorama reflects the prehistoric palms of the local treasure, Agua Caliente park, a desert oasis. The images are paired with an original poem — a love story to both a man and a desert. — Artist's website.
