"Aquarius" Sundial

By Jerry Jaramillo

Located at Benedict Park, 1750 Skeel Street

Aquarius is the water bearer, also the mother figure of the sundial. Aquarius is pouring water from a pot that is creating the zodiac; it ultimately turns into Halley’s Comet. The Sun and Moon are represented along with the Big Dipper. The Sundial is a mixed media of gnome (stainless steel) and cast cement with a faux finish. The Colorado Garden Show provided a grant for the xeriscape garden that surrounds the sculpture. The garden was designed by the City of Brighton Parks staff and planted by Southeast Elementary and Brighton Charter School students.
