Let's visit Expo 86

My new book on Expo 86 is now available, so I thought I would celebrate for a few days with some looks back at the fair.

This imaginative sculpture was titled "Transcending the Traffic." I used a different image of it in the book, but the description from the text still fits here:

"The Land Plaza also featured “Transcending the Traffic,” a large and colourful sculpture that stretched above the other exhibits. Created by William Lishman, the 26-metre-tall collection of 55 figures morphed from vehicles near the ground into humans riding animals, and then finally changed to human figures near the top. The figures are now on display at Lishman’s home in Purple Hill, Ontario."
