A beautiful work, by the talented Jaume Plesna, perfectly sited at the foot of the Bow tower. Great to see and photograph on a sunny day!

Calgary is not know for it's art culture by outsiders, they just think it's all oil and cattle but there is a thriving art community. This sculpture in front of the Bow is a good place for a photo op and to just sit and take it all in.

This is an interesting urban sculpture. I am not sure it is all that special though. Like all art, it is thought provoking, and I appreciate the design and found it amusing. That said, not sure it is more interesting or special than any other urban art. If you are in the area, walk by and spend 5 minutes near... More

You can take some pictures and have fun for sometime. Does not have anything special in it. No need to go specially to see it.

Fun to go inside and look out at the passerbys. A must see if you are at the Bow building. Most enjoyed from the outside.

I love all types of art but this one piece always leaves me asking why? Not sure of its pour pose or meaning and it does not appeal to me.

Not much to say here. It's a metal sculpture of a baby's head. Security won't let people climb it which isn't the biggest surprise but in terms of possible artwork that could be downtown by the Suncor building....this leaves much to be desired.

You won't miss the Wonderland Sculpture if you are checking out the Bow skyscraper. It's a unique sculpture and you can "enter" it for some different photo opportunities.

Wonderland is a wonderful piece of art. It's gigantic, so you can see it from a distance or even walk right through it. Kids love this, just watch they don't climb too high up. In the winter, it's most comfortable to get here via the Plus 15 walkway system, with all its shops, restaurants and cafes. There's quite a bit... More
