"Lady of the Sea" Wind Harp

In 1989 the City of Anacortes, Washington, announced a contest to design a sculpture for Cap Sante, a large rock promontory at the entrance to the harbor.

Ron envisioned a female figure, holding a light in her outstretched hands, whose body is merged into a giant harp which is played by the wind.

Long-time friend and artist Jim Wegner sculpted "The Lady", whose long flowing hair became the neck of the harp.

Ron crafted the overall design, and Ed Hagemann stepped in once again for the engineering.

At 32 feet tall, the Lady of the Sea would be the world's largest harp. Their design won an award for making it into the final five.

Unfortunately the project ran afoul of local politics, and nothing ever happened.
