"Home Again, Home Again"


Part of the Pole Colonnade that runs up Spadina Ave, this sculpture (on a 20' pole) called "Home Again, Home Again" by David Hylnsky and Shirley Yanover was installed in 1997 at the corner of one of the streets leading into Kensington Market. The title comes from the Mother Goose rhyme "to Market, to Market" and the bronze cat and the aluminum old-fashioned kitchen chair represent the domesticity, comfort, and well-being that the market services provide.

Nice tribute to the domestic animals. ;-)

Ah yes. Now I remember that rhyme. Good ol' Mother Goose.

You certainly have plenty of street art in your neighbourhood.
