12 points in a classical balance

This really neat sculpture by Chung Hung is located at the Garden of Provinces and Territories, right in the middle on a field of grass. The abstract sculpture is made out of red cedar in the shape of a "loop" bending at 12 locations (points). It looks really nice against the various types of trees and was a good challenge to draw. I wonder if the 12 points was supposed to represent the 12 provinces and territories at the time, since it was built in 1982, before Nunavut was added.
