Walking Figures

“Walking Figures” by Magdalena Abakanowicz



was commissioned for the Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale. In “Walking Figures” 18 headless cast iron figures stride toward a place unseen, each with one foot forward. The headless figures derive from the social turmoil Abakanowicz has experienced, and it represents the nature of human beings as they travel in groups. The 18 figures were individually cast in Poland, with unique markings that ensure no two figures are alike. Quite an awesome sight when driving down Cambie Street.
