Raptor Intaglio

DESCRIPTION

The most visible and largest artwork within Gwynn Murrill's series of contemporary sculptures for the Montana, is a dramatic intaglio carving into the limestone panel sections that are situated above the building's main entrance on Colorado Blvd. Two large-scaled raptors are carved into the limestone, creating a flowing narrative for the building's fa├žade. On the left side, a raptor hovers over the main entrance with wings spread in predatory motion. A profile view of the raptor on the right offers a close up perspective of the talons ready to grasp its prey. These relief images symbolize the raptors that descend upon the valley where Pasadena sits below the San Gabriel Mountains.
