This is a tiny part of a sculpture called "The Family of Man". The sculpture, conceived and designed by Mario Armengol, was commissioned for Britain's Pavilion at Expo 67. Today they sit in front of the Calgary Board of Education office in downtown Calgary. I hope the flood of 2013 did not damage them.
To see in it's entirety is breathtaking. The sculptures are 21 feet high, naked, and in groups reaching out to each other in gestures of fellowship and goodwill. My understanding is that Mario Armengol aimed to inspire 2 moods - an immediate reaction to man dominating and then a contradictory feeling of insignificance and dependence. I absolutely felt those emotions standing beneath this immense work and choosing the story I wanted to tell.
