The Iris sculpture was done in 1967 by Québec artist Raoul Hunter in conjunction with Expo 67, the world's fair.
The work consists of four curved elements made from pre-cut aluminium sheets. All of the concave surfaces converge towards each other, producing an enveloping effect.
In May, 2012, the work was restored and reinstalled at Parc Jean-Drapeau by the City of Montréal.
