The sculpture has been displayed at the CMNA. Davis finds that MOCA's gallery, "creates a personal space that offers viewers a kind of personal view with the sculpture and helps them more closely examine the work." The circular shape of the gallery, the light hardwood floor, and the floor-to-ceiling windows allow a new sight of the sculpture's symbolic design and beauty. Davis elaborates, "The room gives the viewer a full range of sensory experiences with the work. The rich colors of the sculpture vary with the time of day.
