Windsor - Canada

This is the start of the Canada-USA travelogue 2018.
A tour started and ended in Toronto.
After we had been offered a glass of champagne by KLM during the flight on the occasion of Lars's birthday, we arrived at Toronto Pearson International Airport around noon.
From here we drove immediately to Windsor, the Canadian border town opposite Detroit-USA.
In the early evening (for us actually deep in the night) we walked through the sculpture park along the river Detroit. We would have plenty of time the next morning to cross the border.

I start with three photos of some of the sculptures in the park. For me an attractive combination of modern art and the big city. It is inevitable that the skyline of Detroit serves as a backdrop for the images.

Claim Post - Scott McKay
London sculptor Scott McKay has staked his claim in Windsor's riverfront parks with the addition of his 10-foot steel sculpture, Claim Post.
Created from steel, the 7-foot blue pole features flowing yellow, red and orange ribbons representing creative energy, while the post draws on the strength of community.

Obelisk - Sigmund Reszetnik
Sigmund Reszetnik's blue "S" shaped rendition of the traditional obelisk stands over 15 feet tall and 5 feet wide. The obelisk has its origins in the civilization of ancient Egypt. Obelisks were sources of protection and defence, thought to be able to pierce the sky and break apart negative forces that might harm the temple of the Eqyptian sun god. They also appeared in what are now Central and South America.

Cordella - Maryon Kantaroff
"I think I was asking, where do we all come from?" In Cordella we see Kantaroff's attention shifting to a universal fascination with the idea of origins. The piece is dynamic and seems almost to be growing organically. Cordella is caught up in the evolutionary tension of being a living thing. Beginning at the microscopic level, one half of this clam-shaped sculpture seems to represent a cell moving through the earliest stages of its division. The other half, more rounded and smooth, holds on to the perfectly natural shape and symbol of an egg.
