Spirit Catcher

manque image

Architect(s) : Ron Baird

Another sculpture, a few steps away from the Great Ramses II Hall, reflects the theme of EXP0 86 wonderfully, as Spirit Catcher, created by Ontario artist Ron Baird, is a bird, a powerful and timeless theme that is part of the artistic tradition of many cultures.

At 15 metres high and with a wingspan of 24 metres, this steel bird of monumental proportions exudes a real sense of grandeur. The spotlights at its base highlight polished stainless steel panels that contrast with the Spirit Catcher's black horizontal plane.
