This face have so many faces within. Depending on where you are located, and the angle you see it from, you'll find different persons faces from an old woman to a weeping lady, to a boy, to a man.... Impressive!

If you are into art and in downtown Calgary then it’s worth checking out as it’s right on the beaten path, close to restaurants, the East Village and Eau Claire and the Palliser Hotrl.

An interesting piece of public art where you can literally get inside the head of a young girl created by Barcelona artist Jaume Plensa. Twelve metres high and rendered in white bent-wire, this enigmatic bust gazes serenely at the comings and goings of a city...More

I have actually left the East Village, National Music Centre or Stampede Park, to head home to northwest, and specifically chosen a Sixth Avenue route to pass by this large art piece. Very impressive.
