Immigrant Family

We come from the land of the ice and snow. From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Address: 18 Yonge Street
Date: May 2014
Website: www.tomotterness.net

   Where they came from, we don't know.  It is possible that they came from New York City, as we have seen some smaller yet similar people in the subway there.  This Toronto sculpture and the "Life Underground" figures in New York are both created by artist Tom Otterness.  The other thing they both have in common is that they are very cute.  The family with the big round heads are part of a work of art called "Immigrant Family".  They stand in front of a Yonge Street condo welcoming people to Toronto.  Or is that being welcomed to Toronto?  Either way this family always brings a smile to our faces.

We Are Family.
