“Venus, goddess of love, offers her cloak of beauty and comfort to everyone.” — Miro Davis
I offer this sculptural rest stop to comfort busy minds on busy streets. Seated for a moment on the black pearl, the shell forms a throne behind you, creating a protective shelter that invites contemplation.
“Venus” is located on Barrington Street across from the Halifax Grand Parade.
