The Giant Sparrows

One of the best things about Vancouver recently have been the public art that have popped up as a result of the Olympics. One such piece that has captured the imagination are the giant sparrows in False Creek by artist Myfanwy MacLeod. They are really astonishing. Seeing them tower above you is quite the experience.

There is a great write up about the project from the City of Vancouver here.

Aren't they just the most wonderful things?


  1. Yes, I think they are, though I'm not at all an expert. But these lil' birdies are everywhere in Vancouver.

  2. I have been enjoying several Vancouver Biennale art works but not this one yet... It is great! I will have to pay a visit to False Creek!
