Trilon and Perisphere – Revisited

(c) John Fansmith 2015The Trylon & Perisphere were the iconic symbols of the 1939 World’s Fair. Constructed out of painted gypsum board, they were intended to convey the advent of a period of peace, progress, and prosperity.

My Trylon & Perisphere – Revisited, with the benefit of hindsight, is a welded steel and discarded saw blades sculpture which preserves the pyramid/sphere essence of the original but with a sharper, and perhaps more realistic edge. 28-1/2″ x 18-1/2″ x 14″. $475
