Long Description:

Located in the outdoor sitting area of St. Peter's Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario. Parking is available just south of the Waymark however it is metered.

As the wind blows, the butterfly changes pitch and the counterweight returns it gently when the wind reduces.

The irredescent wings remind one of oil on water when the sunlight reflects from them. This makes for a very tranquil motion for the residents while enjoying some fresh air.

There is no plaque or other indication of the artist, which is unfortunate.
