Aesop’s Fables
by Garry Williams (1956 – 2005) at 14th Avenue

Set in the Baptist church garden, this imposing 10-foot concrete obelisk contains four bronze relief panels on each of its four sides. The panels each contain a different visual representation of an Aesop’s Fable. “Aesop’s Fables are particularly delightful because animals are substituted in the place of humans and therefore apply to all of us, regardless of race, gender or social status.” By Garry Williams 2002.
