Public Sculptures by James Lee Hansen seen at Fulton Street, Fresno, Fresno - Talos

Talos

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.
