Winged blue heron, Bradford West Gwillimbury, Ontario
This heron was created by local sculptor George Holancin. Making sculptures from discarded metal scraps and machinery is Holancin's way of minimizing waste. He envisions birds and animals when he comes upon hay rakes and obsolete plows tangled in weeds and nestled in wooded areas.
Small garden on major road into town
Part of a fountain, the base and impeller are cast iron and original components of one of two drainage pumps that in 1928 drained the Holland Marsh (now rich farmland that lies in Bradford West Gwillimbury, King Township and East Gwillimbuty).
In 2006, this piece won Top Honours for Floral Display for that year's province-wide Communities in Bloom contest.
