Rising dramatically above Buffalo Bayou's Sesquicentennial Park are seven, 70-foot-tall pillars titled Seven Wonders. Flanking the park's Promenade and Preston Avenue Bridge, the columns highlight Houston's history through the themes of agriculture, energy, manufacturing, medicine, philanthropy, technology and transportation. Each column is constructed of 150 individual children's drawings, etched in stainless steel plate.
