A full view of yesterday's image portion. I like this kind of crazy surrealist art to liven up architecture from time to time.

@Anna Cherer: Yes, Anna : you indeed win and I thank you for providing all of the pertinent information !

Brilliant revelation . . armed with Anna's info, I find "The artist completed the work in Shanghai, and then had it shipped to Toronto, where it was reassembled." All very impressive.

Wow!! This view really reveals the enormity of the sculpture! I like the portions that are disconnected that really give it its free form.

@Steven: Pretty tough to get this thing properly framed; I stood in the median of University Ave. to get what I wanted in the viewfinder, then had to wait a while for a pedestrian free shot. You nailed this one yesterday, as well, so congrats and thanks !

This is literally quite a "piece of work". Art is the free expression of man, the most accurate truth of the state of our psyche. I understand us more from my art history classes than any school book. this is a brilliantly designed, accurate reflection of our times.
