Petter Wetterin tie 5, Helsinki

Canopy by Jukka Vikberg (b. 1951, Pyhäjärvi) in the yard of the Herttoniemenranta Primary School is an environmental artwork that consists of several parts. It includes translucent steel canopies shaped like a leaf, partly polished boulders set in the school yard, a stone path and the word human in several languages embedded in the ground. The striped lights on the wall of the school are also part of the work.

The work was produced under the Percent for Art programme, and it belongs to the collection of the City of Helsinki, managed by HAM Helsinki Art Museum.
