"Inner City Gate"


This is another one of the more than 40 pieces in Toronto by artist Kosso Eloul and once again he is playing the balancing act with large steel boxes. Installed in 1978 and located outside the Elizabeth St entrance to Toronto General Hospital, it is quite an impressive sight standing on a high earth mound and being 10 ft tall itself. It was -19C on Sunday morning when I took this shot so I didn't linger!

It's amazing one artist have more than 40 pieces around the city!
It's another impressive sculpture that reminds me the children's plays.

This guy has very interesting concepts. I'm not sure how you got your fingers to work the shutter button with cold like that.

I like it, especially against the snow.

I would not want to be under it if it fell. Nice shot and I agree with Birdman about the snow.

I like it. You are lucky to have so much, and such good, public art in Toronto. This reminds me of the work of David Smith, a sculptor who did a lot of work with large black boxes in the 1960s or so.
