The title refers to an ancient legend and heraldic symbol of watchfulness. The theme of vigilance relates to the site: the sculpture stands in front of the city’s new justice center, which houses the courts and police.

The subject, a wading bird, suits the artwork’s location in rain garden landscaping.

Since the underlying legend concerns a sentry who never sleeps, nighttime lighting was an important part of this commission.

The commission also included foundation and landscaping work.
