Draped Marble

This sculpture, "Shift", by Canadian artist Carl Tacon is situated a little out of the way just south of Bloor St on St Thomas St along the entrance to a condo building. Installed in 2008, it is 42 metres long and together the 20 individual sections of hand-carved marble weigh 50 tons. Another example of the City of Toronto's art requirement for new development, it is an incredible piece - worth searching it out.
