Prairie Winds Park Seed Pod

Seed Pod

Seed Pod is the heart of a sculpture by Incipio Modo in Prairie Winds Park, Calgary

A seed pod carried by the wind lands on the top of the hill of prairie winds park.  Nestled into the heart of the hill, the seed will germinate and grow.  The pod is shelter to the seed of a native prairie wild flower. From anywhere in the park, the seed pod is invisible and may only be seen to those who trek to the top of the hill.  A gravel path that winds around the hill leads to the pod, and from above, the silhouette of a seed pod and stem are drawn on the hill. The pod is a functional organic structure that serves as a gathering place where people can meet, sit in contemplation and relax.
