Photographer's Note

The Four Elements is a 16-foot-tall stainless steel sculpture by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa. It was commissioned by the DeVos family. The 2,450-kg sculpture uses letters and element symbols for air, water, fire and earth forming a human figure. The sculpture alludes to “the many different characteristics that bring people together to form a single human race,” according to a news release.
