    Tilting at Giants was commissioned by Broad Street Ministry in Philadelphia for the sanctuary of the former Chambers Wylie Memorial Presbyterian Church. Tilting at Giants is composed of twelve decorative aluminum farm windmills suspended twenty feet above the pews within the Gothic revival sanctuary of this historic Philadelphia church. Each windmill is fitted with a votive candle suspended within the tower frame.
