Public Art: Plumb Bob In Janus Head sculpture
Also Known As: Janus Head; Plumb Bob Brain
Sculptors/Artists: © Larry Kirkland and Robert Murase
Description: A large granite sculpture of a Janus Head, which features two heads, one facing west, the other facing east. The two faces are intended to remind us that we must look to the past as well as the future (very Zen). Suspended in between the two heads is a (cast bronze) golden plumb-bob. Ok, for all of those who aren’t familiar with workman’s tools, a plumb bob is a tool used by builders to establish a true vertical. Symbolically the plumb bob represents the beginning of “where a city is built.”
Location: Outside the Wellington Webb Building, Denver, Colorado.
