Rising Phoenix

Last November I posted two photos from the Town & Country Shopping Center. You can see them here and here. I failed to show you this exquisite Phoenix Bird sculpture that has been the symbol for this center all these years. The sculpture is made of steel and stained glass and in the morning you can see the light filtering through the glass as you drive by.

There is a dedication plaque next to the sculpture that reads “The Phoenix, Symbolizing power, beauty, and constant youth. Dedicated to the memory of artist Paul Coze and the City of Phoenix”

Great sculpture with lots of movement!

Sharon, if you have some time go to my 'nature' blog and check the latest cacti 1st time blooms. They are beautiful and quite surprising.

I have always loved this sculpture. One of my favorite places to hang out especially when the Marble Slab was there.
