One of the most popular sculptures at Laumeier and my personal favorite is Alexander Liberman's The Way. The monumental work was designed for the site. Everyone has different interpretations. To me, it looks like an enormous, ruined gateway from a lost civilization, possibly ancient, possibly alien, placed in St. Louis for safekeeping. The park's website refers to the guns of a giant battleship. Either way, it conveys disarray and power. Maybe it is a metaphor for inevitable decay.
