316 – Balancing, Five Coloured Whimsical Wooden Figures Balancing on a Y-shaped Beam, as seen on the Rideau Canal Esplanade
May I present to you Balancing by New Brunswick artist John Hopper. Another piece of Ottawa art that has to go on my not so official list of amazing things I never expected to find in this city. I always expect to find good old bronze statues, but a wood carved, brightly coloured piece, now that was unexpected! Read the story behind it and their flickr photos to really appreciate the work put into restoring this thing, it is actually pretty interesting. They pulled off the restauration work perfectly. On that note, hope you all enjoy a very timely and hopefully pretty holiday Monday!
