This abstract, cast bronze piece titled "Cedars" by Canadian artist Walter Yarwood was done in 1962 and sits outside the Anthropology building at U of Toronto. Yarwood said that it was inspired by a cedar grove he played in as a child with all its hidden areas between the branches. He was the same artist who did the Coca-Cola sculpture that I showed you a few weeks ago and was part of the "Painters Eleven" group of abstract painters in the 1950s before turning to sculpture in the 60s. I knew Walter in the 70s & 80s and he was a gentle artist and a nice man!
The reflected building is the Earth Sciences Centre of the university - a post modern building from the late 80s which still works.
