  • The stone and stainless steel sculpture, titled "Waves III" created in 2011 by Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa, was the fifth addition in Davidson's campus sculpture program. From a distance, Waves III appears as a loosely defined figure seated and holding its knees on the 7,000 pound rock where it rests. Up close, however, the shape is revealed to be created by hundreds of interconnected letters and symbols of varying size from many different languages.
