Skywatch Friday





I'm linking up over here today

July 2013 - Calgary Alberta

Family of Men
These sculptures were specifically commissioned for that part of Britain's Pavilion at Expo 67 which portrayed Britain responding to the challenge of the world problems and meeting international responsibilities. They were conceived and designed by Mario Armengol, who aimed to inspire two moods - an immediate reaction to man dominating and then a contradictory feeling of insignificance and dependence.
At the conclusion of Expo 67, Robert Cummings purchased the sculptures on behalf of Maxwell Cummings and Sons, who donated them to the City of Calgary.




Yes, that's me in the middle.

  1. Woo! Love the use of arm poses in these sculptures! There is a sense of embrace in the gathering of these figures! Especially love the pose in the first photo - hands turned to the beautiful blue of the sky!
