Reclining Figure


This bronze sculpture, "Reclining Figure", by Canadian artist John Fillion is one of the best in the city and probably my favourite. Installed in front of an office tower on St Clair Ave W in 1967, it continues to be so powerful in real life that it should stop traffic. Totally love it!

Shirley- I make my living as a visual artist. Not hard to figure out, I guess.

Stunning! Why didn't I get to see this when I lived there? Actually, I was going to start a street art feature on my Toronto blog, but then that became a tad difficult, what with finding myself living in London.
