Here are few more sculptures from Citygarden, above and below photos showing "Kindly Geppetto" by Tom Atterness, an American artist. In this piece, the carpenter Geppetto is about to hammer the poor Pinocchio as he was trying to prove that he was able to tell right from wrong. Otterness explores complicated relationship between the creator and his creation.
Above is "Femmes au Perroquet", an unpainted bronze version of a variety of media, including painting, printmaking and sculpture by Fernand Leger, a French artist. I wonder if Leger named this piece Women or Female and Parrots because he thinks women talk too much or only speak of things that men told them to say!
