The Baggage Handler

Well, I finally made my way down to the traffic circle in Penticton and took a look at the statue that has been shocking the locals and embarrassing the mayor. The metal plate that was installed has been removed and he's standing there in all his glory.

According to the release document from The Art Gallery of the South Okanagan, the installation by Michael Hermesh will change in the spring when the luggage is opened up and flowers are planted in them.

Also, according to the AGSO, this is termed "experimental art".
