Part of an art installation by George Boileau, 1990,
on Simcoe St., between King and Wellington.
A bronze statue of a bare footed man wearing an overcoat.
Behind him on the wall is ‘his shadow’.

Close up of a bronze sculpture of a man.  In this picture you can only see his head and shoulders.  Behind him on a wall is a black silhouette that looks like his shadow.  A large white planter is also in the picture although there is nothing growing in it.

A bronze sculpture of a man in bare feet.   He is wearing an overcoat.  He is standing with his arms passively at his side.   Behind him on a wall is a black silhouette that looks like his shadow.  A large white planter is also in the picture although there is nothing growing in it.

Not seen in this photo is another figurative sculpture.  A small boy stands on the other side of the stairs.  He too is bare foot and wearing a coat.  He is looking toward the shadow on the wall.
