Artist Lorado Taft’s sculptural allegory of humanity’s relationship with time positions a tall, imposing figure across a reflecting pool from a 110-foot-long mass of figures representing the universal human themes of love, war and the cycle of life. This sea of humanity appears to strain in unison across the void toward the solitary figure.
