"Reclining Torso"

This sculpture, "Reclining Torso", has been one of my favourites for years and every time I see it I am struck by its visual strength. It was done by John Filion in 1969 and sits in the front courtyard of an office building along St Clair Ave. I tried to keep the signage of the neighbouring coffee shop out of the pic!

A bit odd, but that's just my reaction.

I think it a bit strange, but I like strange things :)

Now there's an excellent sample of core body strength!

Linda said...

Looks like it´s getting up again.

Strong indeed Pat. Those core muscles would be like steel after 51 years :)
