Peter Nicklas of Sunset Metal Works in Chambersburg, provided the metal work for the sculpture. He is an expert in welding who has spoken internationally on the subject.

Over the years, he has generously donated many of his photos to Chambersburg Hospital and Waynesboro Hospital.
Dr. Thane believes that the beauty and optimism of the photos can brighten a patient’s day – and their outlook.
