Photographer's Note

This sculpture is on display in Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital in the “Hennick Family Wellness Gallery“ , named after the donor who made it possible to create the attractive indoor/outdoor space to display the over 100 artworks donated by Sorel Etrog. This piece is described as follows:
"Samburu 1972 Painted Bronze.
In 1971 Etrog returned to his studio in Florence with a couple of trunks and a crate full of nuts and bolt. The crate full of hardware inspired a new direction in his sculpture, aptly named Screws & Bolts. Sorel's emphasis on connectivity and the sense of family inspired Samburu. Representative of a mother and child of the Samburu people of Kenya, the vibrant red was a shift from the customary earthy patinas to a new expressive and bold finish in automotive paint."

I put a picture into the Workshop showing three other Etrog sculptures displayed on the outside patio of the gallery.
