This zebra is just one critter in a whole parade of animals at the entrance to the Calgary Zoo. They stand about nine feet high and extend about fifty feet and cast the most wonderful shadows on the sidewalk when it's sunny.
Kids love to climb on them too.
The artist was Lucy Curtis and the piece was comissioned in memory of a long time benefactor of the zoo, Mona Libin. They reminded me of those curled paper cards that you sometimes find at craft fairs but I loved the scale and ruggedness of the weathered metal they were made from.
