New Sculpture at the National Art Gallery of Canada


This wonderful new sculpture, Majestic by Michel de Broin, was recently installed on the grounds of the National Art Gallery in Canada. The piece is made of lampposts that were uprooted by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

This view is from the other side of the sculpture. I love the way you can walk around the piece and see different things when you view it from different angles.

Some of the effects of the placement of the lampposts were really interesting. Lampposts don't usually stick out at this angle. It was quite effective with the Parliament Buildings in the background (maybe a comment on the current government?)
