"The Pines"


This bronze sculpture by Canadian artist Walter Yarwood was installed in front of a Government of Ontario building on Wellesley St in 1968. This low relief style was very typical of the era and of his work which included many commissions for various institutions including the U of Toronto. I love how the snowfall has accentuated the branches!
