Hart at Hart House


This has been a difficult sculpture to photograph because of all the texture in the stone wall behind it - I've been back several times and finally think this one catches it. Titled "Nuture/Nature" and by Canadian artist Joe Fafard, it was installed outside Hart House in 1993 and shows an arch through which you see a hart (adult male deer) surrounded by trees. Typical of Fafard's metal works, he plays with the optics to portray depth and perspective where there really isn't any!
