Talos - Public Sculptures
Creator not accepting inquiries
Talos, which is part of James Lee Hansen's Guardian series, is located at Fulton Mall in downtown Fresno. Talos comes from Greek mythology. He was a man of brass given by Zeus to King Minos of Crete as a watchman. Thus, the watchman of the Mall. It is shown with three legs and other discernible body parts, like a head, rib cage, and hips. James is one of the most talented of Pacific Northwest sculptors whose abstract work in metal reflects the influence of Chinese bronzes and totemic Indian sculpture.
