A Work in 3 Places Part 2


Just along the street from yesterday's sculpture you will find this piece consisting of a little bronze boy pulling a wagon with a 21 ft high, stone obelisk on it. He too is heading towards Toronto Police Headquarters. The obelisk has the words "To Serve And Protect" chiseled into it - the motto of the Toronto Police. I have done a 2 part pic since there is such a scale difference between the boy and the obelisk!

great series of pics. i am looking forward to the last one. this is a marvelous series of sculptures. perhaps wasted outside the police station as i do not believe that a great number of people or tourists go there willingly! thanks for this series - great find! love all the sculpture you are finding to show us.

I suppose this is one way to get art out there and among the people. It looks very good to me.

Gotta love a public institution hauling icons of the Masons around. Makes one question "who" are they to server and protect? Definitely not the public!
