Swimmer

Just outside the Phoenix Art Museum is this giant sculpture of a swimmer floating through and underwater obstacle.  I'm afraid I don't know the artist's name but, I have always admired this sculpture from a distance.

Sharon, I meant to say, the Hyatt was in my photo yesterday, the building with the circling restaurant on top. You have been everywhere...

Very interesting. He really looks swimming in the air.

I dont really associate swimming with your area. Maybe the artisit longs for more water.

I really like it too Sharon, it's such a clever idea.

Is the swimmer turning to swim through the obstacle? There's something about the perspective that seems weird...like where the legs are. :)
