"The Three Watchmen"


As I wandered about College Park, I discovered these wonderful totems installed to commemorate the opening of a new addition in 1984. By celebrated Canadian artist Robert Davidson who is from our northwest coast and is of Haida descent, they are magnificent! The larger pole is 50ft high and the 2 smaller ones are 30ft tall - standing in a 6 storey atrium. I couldn't get back far enough to get the top in - it's amazing how our human eye can see where the camera can't!

Too bad about not being able to get it all in! I hate it when that happens! Still, I can see it is a magnificent sculpture.
