by Paul Granlund, 1979, bronze

Statue in fountain outside of La Crosse Public Library, Wisconsin USA.   It shows a young woman resting on top of a carved base which the sculptor says was designed as an integral part of the sculpture. The figure and the base create “complementary negative images and contradicting planes” in the words of the artist. According to this site, the title Reflections III is “intentionally ambiguous, referring to reflections of the
figure in the base, reflections in the pool of water before
it, and the intellectual process of reflecting upon an idea.”
