The pole is a sculpture that is made of bolted plates of magnesium and aluminum. Terry Fugate-Wilcox, the sculptor, estimates the plates will fuse together in 3000 A.D. Hence the name.

If you can see the sculpture from the bridge you can see the bridge from the sculpture. If you walk to the east side of the park you can see this mini-GWB.
