Bird carrying Cheemah (see that here)

Cheemah, Mother of the Spirit Fire sculpture

I missed the point while there, not even going around to the other side.
On the base: Ancient bronze sun symbols from cultures around the world.
From City of Oakland webpage: "An eighteen-foot tall bronze monument, dedicated to
celebrating cultural diversity, world unity and care for the earth ... Eight Cheemahs will be
placed around the world, and Oakland, California will host the only one in North America..."
Also, Tanya took two really good photos of the actual subject! (press 'previous' while there).

Canon EOS 350D
1/100s f/10.0 at 135.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Barry, thanks for your note. If you have your photo of this up somewhere, let us know.
And it's nice to know that occasionally some of the added info is read! :-)

Nor did I when I took a photo of it in April 2007. Reading your links I found out a great deal. What a fascinating idea. So glad I saw it. Thanks for the photo and information.
