Walking Figures

Near Petco Park in San Diego, California.

“The artwork consists of 18 nine-foot-high cast iron headless figures arranged in two rows. Artist Magdalena Abakanowicz said the headless figures derive from the social turmoil she has experienced, as well as the nature of humans as they travel in groups. The 18 figures were individually cast in Poland, with unique markings that ensure no two figures are alike.” Source

Barrel & Plant

Old Town, San Diego.
