New Sculpture at the National Gallery
About 2 weeks ago, I saw some men doing what appeared to be construction work on a traffic island I cross every day, between the National Gallery and Major's Hill Park in Ottawa.. Then, last week, as I crossed the traffic island on my morning walk to work, I saw this marvelous sculpture that they had installed there. I found out later that it is called "The Three Watchmen" and it is by the Haida artist Jim Hart. Isn't it fabulous?
Here it is taken from the other side. I wanted to see what it would look like with the National Gallery in the background on one side and Louise Bourgeois' sculpture "Maman" on the other. Three different styles but harmonious, nevertheless.
