The Pearl Gate, created by siblings Kurt Steger and Char Norman, is a collaborative work, which creates a passage symbolic of personal and spiritual transformation. The piece represents many notions, some by intention, some by happenstance.

The sculpture is symbolic of a bridge transitioning from one world to another, representative of a book of five chapters written by the physical interaction of each person who passes through, and at the same time an experience of both birth and death as one moves through the piece into the light.
