The Crab – Vancouver, British Columbia

A lovely, enigmatic stainless steel giant crab provides a dramatic entry point to the Museum of Vancouver (formally known as the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre Planetarium ). It is hard to figure out the actual thinking behind this installation, but the supplied content from the gallery states that the crab is the Squamish people’s mythical harbour protector, giving the work a localized tone and reference.
