Hermandad can be found in the rose garden at the entrance to Gabrielson Park. The steel sculpture by Chilean artist Sergio Castillo was erected in 1968 to celebrate Sausalito's sister city relationship with Castillo's home town of Viña del Mar. The 17-foot, 17,000 lbs. sculpture was knocked over by the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. In 2009 the sculpture was restored and the rose garden created. The rose garden is maintained by volunteers from the Sausalito Woman's Club.[from sausalito government website]
