Rotary Lotus

Rotary Lotus

Designed by Rotarian Bernard Gouin, illustrated by Charles-Etienne Gouin, and fabricated under the leadership of Rotarian Doug Fauth

Designed to induce peace, serenity, and a contemplative state, Rotary Lotus is a four-level counter-revolving kinetic sculpture expressing our internal movements. It is made of aluminum petals with welded wind-catching cavities and is crowned at the top by a ring of aluminum pistils. The artwork is powder-coat painted, spans 6 feet in height, 9 feet in width, and reaches 8 feet above water.

Rotary Lotus is displayed in 2022 for the second consecutive year.
