Sculpture at Botanical Gardens

My main reason for visiting the Toronto Botanical Garden was to check out the newly unveiled garden sculpture. Created by Ron Baird (he also did the Dupont gate from a previous post), it was installed in April 2010. Made of stainless steel, it stands 30 ft tall and to me it seems a bit too tall to relate to the gardens around it. People walking through the gardens are looking down at the flowers and it seemed as if most if them didn't even see the sculpture! Pity.
