Breathing Lotus, the Asian Art Museum's giant outdoor installation in Civic Center Plaza, is situated in a wild wind tunnel.
Spring and summer, when the sculpture is slated to hang out, are traditionally the windiest times of the year.
The piece is constantly writhing and changing shape...
...sometimes even imitating the Rolling Stones lips logo.
Let us hope that the flower doesn't get blown off its pedestal and take out a doubledecker tour bus, like the 1991 Christo death by a giant yellow umbrella in Los Angeles.
