These striking red sculptures titled "Landing Sculpture S II & SIV" by Canadian Carl Lander, were originally installed in a reflecting pool in 1970 but the years had been hard on them and they were removed and totally restored before being reinstalled just recently. The pool was redone and has yet to be filled. They are found in an area of many high -rise rental apartment buildings (near Yonge & Davisville) whose developer, Al Green, loves sculpture and who commissioned many pieces to enhance the grounds surrounding the buildings. Not the norm for developers today.
