Dominoes Anyone?


This granite sculpture/bench of giant domino pieces is located at one of the busiest corners in Toronto, Spadina and Bloor. It took a few trips back there to get a shot when the pieces weren't totally covered by people! Designed by artists Susan Schelle & Mark Gomes, the pieces each feature a leaf on the back typical of the Carolinian forest that once grew here and the pieces themselves reference the domino games that were often played here. Installed as part of the Toronto transit improvements, the area also features a small treed parkette with lots of seating.

It would be good if one could actually play a game with them like the large chess sets you find in some places.

Very cool. I can understand that this is a place where people like to meet. And it's a good photo, wouldn't be the same without the people.
