Title from 'The Windhover' by Gerard Manly Hopkins
Thanks to Judy Taylor for bringing this poem to my attention - after the sculpture was done!
FARMERS FEED CITIES
Outdoor found object sculpture, ~ 8' x 4', was installed at Arbor Gallery/Centre for Contemporary Art in Vankleek Hill, Ontario, Aug. 2011 to October 2012. Vankleek Hill proclaims that it is the 'Gingerbread Capital of Ontario' - referring to the fancy wooden trim on many of its houses - so it seemed appropriate to pay homage somehow.
