"Legacy (the mud beneath our feet)"

There is a lot of art sprinkled about the Evergreen Brick Works site including a lot of graffiti but also some great murals and this wonderful representation of a pair of hiking boots by artist David Hind, made using reclaimed materials. It is a tribute to the geologist A. P. Coleman who explored the site during the 1920s and discovered a new interglacial period which came to be known as the Don Formation and which was laid down 120,000 years ago.

A very different sculpture, but fitting for the area.

They do look like old boots! Love it! The area looks a bit overgrown, though ... is that the way it's supposed to be or is that purposely being let go back to a more natural state?

Great sculpture. I would make a great gate.

Love the angle you've taken with this one Pat, the blue sky shows it this piece off perfectly.

This is lovely, RedPat. As you know, I love art but not graffiti. Glad to see this.
