The artist, Gerald Walburg, signed his work near the ground. Welded onto the metal was the expression, "© Walburg 78."

The Indo Arch was massive and tall. It formed an arch over the walkway that connected Old Town to Downtown Sacramento.

The top of The Indo Arch formed a curve over the path below. Here you can see how massively heavy the arch must have been.

The massive left foot of The Indo Arch rested on concrete set into a small plot of grass. This foot was the more massive of the two.

The other foot of The Indo Arch was curved on the bottom and appeared to be an unstable support. In actuality, both feet were anchored into concrete.

A view of The Indo Arch as seen from its side. This shot was taken in winter so trees were bare, and the ground was still damp from recent rain.
