Do you happen to remember this piece of art? I featured it in a post on July 12, 2011. At that time it was located in a shady spot at the Desert Botanical Garden where it remained for about six to eight months. I liked it so much that I took many photos of it and was sad when it was gone.
On Saturday I found it again in the sculpture garden at the Shemer Art Center. I was so pleased to see it up again. It was created by Patricia Sannit who was inspired by the Citadel Erbil in Iraq. You can see a couple of photos I borrowed off of the internet of Erbil in my 2011 post, just click the link above.
When it was on display at the Desert Botanical Garden, it had a rope around it to keep people from getting too close. Here at the Shemer, you can walk around it and through it and admire all the shapes and textures of the bricks that have constructed it. I love it!
