 The exit gates for the children's garden feature a night scene based upon Vincent Van Gough's "Starry Starry Night."  The swirling sky made of mild steel is colored entirely with heat and includes both bronze and cut-out stars.  Other items include a stainless steel trail of a falling star, the big dipper, moon, and landscape.  The gates include small arched gates within the large gate for use by the children.  Gate  handles are miniature UFOs.  All coloration is accomplished by use of chemical patina or heat.
