Who's Got the Umbrella?

Sculpture

Who's Got The Umbrella is a marble sculpture of two people in conversation. The concrete pedestals support marble blocks carved into the shape of human heads with smoothly classical features.  Commissioned for the opening of the Deep Cove Cultural Centre in 1992, the sculptures' flat upper surface and title allude to the effects of local weather.
