Obélisque oblique

Things to do at the Parc Public Art

A work by sculptor Henri-Georges Adam, created in 1962, the Obélisque oblique was a gift from France during Expo 67.

The sculpture's sharp forms point in different directions. Like directional arrows at the crossroads of many routes, they attest to the destiny of modern man, being solicited from all sides.
