The snowflake design seen in the tree grates throughout Gallivan Plaza is a pattern easily recognized by Utahns. This pattern was taken from a photograph of a snowflake and then redrawn on a computer to make sure the openings were enough that water would easily flow to the trees. One quarter of the pattern was drawn life-size and was used to make two life size wooden patterns for the bronze casting. The finished grate consists of four bronze quadrants bolted together and treated with a patina finish.
