Reflections

Artist: Paul T. Granlund
Location: La Crosse Public Library, 800 Main Street

Created in 1979.

Made of cast and fabricated bronze, the fountain-based sculpture depicts a tranquil female figure.  The statue is located in a fountain outside of the La Crosse Public Library. It shows a young woman resting on top of a carved base which the sculptor says was designed as an integral part of the sculpture. The figure and the base create “complementary negative images and contradicting planes” in the words of the artist. According to this site, the title is “intentionally ambiguous, referring to reflections of the figure in the base, reflections in the pool of water before it, and the intellectual process of reflecting upon an idea.”
