Sadko & Kabuki

1975

Sadko and Kabuki, two huge, colourful sculptures that illustrate the affinity between the mechanical and organic worlds were unveiled in 1975. They were produced by the lost wax process, then spray painted with automotive paint.

Sadko, the vivid red piece was inspired by a dancer from the Japanese Sadko ballet. The figure is about 4 meters high and weighs approximately 2 tonnes.

Kabuki is the bright yellow figure; it depicts a Japanese Kabuki dancer.

These two works are currently in storage due to the renovation of Bow Valley Square.  Make sure to come back and check them out when they are back on display!
