La Porte de l'amitié

La Porte de l'amitié

The Puerta de la amistad (Porte de l'amitié or Friendship Gate), created by the Mexican artist, Sebastián, was offered by the Federal District Department of Mexico in 1992 at the signing of the NAFTA free-trade agreement. The work was delivered to Montréal in 1994, arriving by ground transportation, in four separate parts.

The work, which is composed of three columns and topped by a diagonal, represents two entry points, one large and one small, and symbolizes universal access and the circulation of ideas. There are seven components on the cross-sectional part of the art work; the number represents wisdom. The diagonal section conveys height and the pursuit to infinity.
