Description

In the spring of 2008, local artist Stephen Brathwaite installed two bronze stilt walkers in West Carleton. The teetering stilt walkers, which are partial castings of real people, are highly detailed in some areas and defined by leaves in others. Through natural imagery including the use of leaves and real saplings to cast the stilts, the artist connects these figures to the land referencing the special relationship of the West Carleton community to its rural environment.
