龍的傳人/Descendants of the Dragon is a modern interpretation of traditional Chinese calligraphy in bands of steel, hand-forged using traditional blacksmithing techniques. The folds and curves symbolize the movement of people on transit, around their community and throughout the city. The interwoven bands of steel represent people connecting and interacting with each other and with the community.
Designed in collaboration with a local calligrapher, Stephen Tsang who specializes in the cursive Caoshu calligraphy style and is part of Edmonton’s Chinese community, the sculpture translates to, “Descendants of the Dragon” and evokes the image of a dragon.
