The Archer, Henry Moore's iconic bronze statue (1965) at Toronto City Hall. Mayor Ford still lurks in the corridors.....

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Archer, the most recognizable one of Henry Moore's statues in Toronto.

There is even a song about it by Murray McLauchlan (Down by the Henry Moore)

City Hall plaza, is in final stages of major 2 year reconstruction. They renovated the reflecting pool, concession building, washrooms and build a new permanent stage. Hopefully the next & best change will be a new Mayor!

The Archer was installed in Nathan Phillips Square in 1966.

I just realized how ugly is the electrical box. It ruins my photo!

If you open the photo, you will see what I mean, when I write that Mayor Ford is still lurking in the corridors!

I thought you did not care about the location of electrical boxes only Central Europe. L

I care (I am from Central Europe), but They do not!

Even when I was designing machinery, the position of the electrical box had to be aesthetically pleasing!

Excelente foto desse “Guilherme Tell” canadense. Uma escultura imponente muito bem fotografada. Infelizmente a figura do prefeito também floresceu por aqui; só que aqui o número é bem maior. Parabéns pela foto do arqueiro de Henry Moore's. Like 41. Saudações desde Brasília, Brasil Rubens Craveiro
