This sculpture depicts an abstract tree trunk encircled by fragmented red arrows jutting out in various directions. The circle rests in a bed of horizontal lines forming a rectangle. The composition is made out of cast red glass, bronze, and steel. The icon attempts to communicate an apple tree in tribute to Johnny Appleseed, and the arrows pelting a fort, symbolizing the historic conflict in Allen County among the British, French, Native Americans, and American Settlers. This icon also contains a camouflaged form of a Native American archer, drawing his bowstring taut.
