A burnt wood spherical sculpture has arrived on the shores of Lake Ontario
Calgary-based artists Lane Shordee, Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett, have worked together to create a large burnt wood sculpture, named ‘In the Belly of a Bear’.
The sculpture is one of the winners of the Winter Stations Design Competition that challenges architects, designers, and artists from around the world to re-imagine the Lifeguard towers on the beach of Lake Ontario, near Toronto, Canada.
Climbing up inside the 15ft in diameter wooden sculpture, you arrive on a platform, large enough for a group of people.
On the inside of the dome, there is a sitting space lined in thick warm fur.
Looking up, the ceiling has been covered in faux fur coats.
The window provides a view to the sky outside.
The sculpture can be viewed until the 18th of March, 2016, and if you can’t make it, here is a glimpse of how the sculpture was made.
