"Three Disks"


In 1967 an International Sculpture Symposium was held in Toronto and the resulting pieces were installed in High Park. Originally 10 sculptures were installed although only 5 of them remain in the park with 2 having been relocated to other spots in the city and 3 I haven't been able to account for. This piece, Three Disks, by Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman is one of the most striking with its bright yellow cantilevered disks!

great catch red pat and the shadows you picked up on the piece are wonderful. i have seen this piece in situ and your photo does it justice. i notice that it has recently been refinished. it is good to see the city still cares about its sculptures. thanks for the photo

Sculpture in parks is such a great idea!

What is better than a cheerful yellow sun against a blue background? Why three of them of course! Love the winter tree shadows too.

Looks like something my mother would have around the house around Påsk as we like to call it.

I'll call it the rising moon; just for kicks. :-)

It's quite cheery! And certainly unmistakable even on a gray day.

The yellow color does make it quite cheery. Too bad it wasn't red....

You snapped it at the right time Red, the vibrant yellow discs look great covered in shadows.
