It is an interesting piece of art, be sure to see it if the wind is blowing as all the wings swing individually...also recently it’s companion piece was installed just up the bay, the dragon turning in the breeze.

This structure is quite amazing when up close. It’s a fixture down by the waterfront in Barrie Ontario. A tribute to our indigenous people. Worth a visit

You should really try to take in the Spirit Catcher at sunrise during any of the seasons! The waterfront location provides spectacular views!

It is beautiful against the water. In the summer it is peaceful. It is an attraction to tourists all year round.

This is an imposing and awesome sculpture right on the waterfront in Barrie. The address of this is just a little off since the sculpture is located at the end of Maple street - there is a parking lot just in front of the sculpture...More

On the waterfront, this huge sculpture catches the wind and moves the blades. Very unusual and memorable.
