Just when you thought it was safe to wander around the city, pesky giant metal tumbleweeds get rolling across your path. Ok, maybe that doesn’t happen, but it one day could. The closest you will get is the Tumbling Weed by Heath Satow.

Taking a cue from the actual weed itself, the Tumbling Weed resembles a child doing a somersault, if that child were a giant metal sculpture. The series of five sculptures ends in a beautiful metal flower.
