Waiting for the Streetcar


It is rare to pass by this sculpture and find no one sitting on its base. Titled "Sun Life", by Romanian-born Canadian artist Sorel Etrog, it is 1 of many of his sculptures that can be seen around Toronto. This one was installed in 1984 at the busy corner of King and University. More of his to come in the next few weeks as I have been busy out shooting before the snow comes!

Every time you post a picture of a sculpture I think how cool and modern your city is!
Sun Life is a beautiful title.
Have a very good weekend!

What an interesting sculpture! I like it. I also enjoyed scanning all the photos on your site that I missed while I was away. Love the houses on Crawford!

etrog is one of my favourite sculptors who has many pieces throughout the city. it is always wonderful to turn a corner and see one of his large bronzes - always with a mechanical feel that he somehow makes appear soft. thanks for this post

You are so smart to get out and take a ton of photos before the snow and ice takes over.
