Going through photographs this morning it struck me that this one that I had taken a few weeks back suddenly reminded me of yesterdays post of the summer grass. The shapes share a resemblance and a certain whimsy although this structure is much more solid and unmoving! Its a sculpture built in the central courtyard of the Library Building on Broughton Street. It's known as Dynamic Mobile Steel Sculpture by George Norris. - Fern

This is a favourite sculpture of mine.

Sadly, George Norris died a few months ago at 84.

Over at Flickr you can see a collection of his art:

It's stationary?

Wow! Quite impressive.

I have always greatly admired this sculpture that must be almost four stories tall. It was built to slowly revolve and I'm not sure if it still does. Reaching high into the covered atrium space outside the downtown library, it is a terrific piece of public art.
Excellent photo of it.
