Watching the Heads Go By

watercolor
14" x 21"
cityscape

In the city of Chicago you can find these headless sculptures.  There are 106 of them on the south end of Grant Park.  They are 9 feet tall.  The name of these headless pieces is called Agora. They are kinda strange to see but neat at the same time.  enjoy!!

This is a great painting! At first I thought the headless people were your concept for the piece and I was curious to hear the reason... That's really interesting that these are sculptures. Is there a plaque somewhere explaining the artist's vision? I love how you've portrayed them, with the city softened in the background. (I do love Chicago, too)

Agora is a greak word I believe that means meeting place or market place. the people are coming and going in all directions. I believe the artist is a polish artist but I do not remember the name.

I had put people in the painting sitting on the bench and they are counting heads...my way of saying that they are sitting and doing nothing...lol.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
