Sculpture garden

Guerrilla artfare is alive and well in Elysian Park. This morning, I stopped, as I frequently do, by the Totem -- see below -- for a moment of thought and observation. That's Santa's face at the top, and about a ton of the toys he gifted to the good girls and boys, adapted and reused to the tune of about 16 feet, maybe even 20. I do love this piece, not least for its setting. It seems to exult in the little canyons of Elysian Park and in the people who enjoy them.
