"Doe With Fawns"

Just down Bloor St from the Manufacturers Life Insurance building (with the great lawns) is another Insurance headquarters, that of the Crown Life Insurance Co. This building was constructed in 1953 and has 2 wonderful bas relief works by artist Louis Temporale. This one is, not surprisingly, called "Doe With Fawns". I'll show you the other one on another day.
