Walking

This 7 foot tall vase with bronze legs is a recent addition to the front courtyard of the Gardiner Museum of Ceramics which is directly across University Ave from the Royal Ontario Museum. The artist is Shary Boyle who is a well-known Canadian artist. Unfortunately the courtyard is undergoing some construction right now so it is surrounded by fencing.

Now that is odd! But art is interesting because everyone has a different view and interpretation of things.
Have a wonderful day!

I like it too! It almost looks like it could walk away at any minute.

The vase needs feet or it wouldn't stand upright.

Interesting! I do like the oddness of the feet attached to it.
