Airport Rd., Terminal 1, Level 2 (Gates), International Departures, Toronto Pearson Lounge, Toronto, Ontario , Canada

Displayed in Terminal 1, this glimmering, double-sided figure was created by local sculptor Harold Town in 1963. Comprised of 60 individual panels of brass, the 8-by-20-foot sculpture is etched with intricate, abstract patterns that resemble cryptic hieroglyphics. The piece was removed from the airport in the mid 80’s and then reinstalled nearly two decades later. Widely recognized as the “Picasso of Canada,” Town also worked as an illustrator for magazines such as Maclean's and Mayfair. He is best known as a founder of Painters Eleven, a group of abstract artists active in Toronto from 1954-1960.
