Ever notice how the Reid Murdoch building (the one with the clock tower) is asymmetric ? There are 6 bays of windows east of the clock, and only 5 west of the clock. It was originally symmetric but when LaSalle St. was widened in 1926, one of the window bays was removed. #themoreyouknow
Been revering this marvel of man-made wonder on holy devotion since I was a kid. I found a glass orb to shoot against (attached as part of the sculpture) and feel as if I have captured, outwardly, the otherworldly vibes this larger than life art piece has inspired inside of me for as long as I can remember.
It is a massive creation in stone, mortar and bright colored objects-collected materials from all over the world. These include colored glass, gems, antique heirlooms of pottery or porcelain, stalagmites and stalactites, sea shells, starfish, petrified sea urchins and fossils, and a variety of corals, amber glass, agate, quartz, ores, such as iron, copper and lead, fool's gold, rock crystals, onyx, amethyst and coal, petrified wood and moss. It’s just so boss. Like the Wizard of Oz.
