Art in the streets...

IMG_2333I was so surprised to see this sculpture as we were walking through the streets of Victoria, I only got one picture of it.
It really isn't a very good one. I really should have stepped back and taken a photo of the entire sculpture. The steel sculpture is created by Glenn Closson using a line from the poem "Hide and Seek" by Carla Funk, Victoria's first Poet Laureate. You can find more details about the sculpture here and about the poet here.

Apparently there is a penny hidden at the base of the tree trunk... something to look for the next time we are in Victoria.
