Cast Concrete Trylon and Perisphere

About

Fantastic, Folk-Art, cast-concrete replicas of the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair's Trylon and Perisphere. An inspired, of-the-period homage to these iconic forms; the towering, modernistic centerpieces from this fair's much celebrated "Theme Center" designed by architects Wallace Harrison and Andre Fouilhoux. Both forms wearing a beautifully-weathered surface of mottled, grey paint over exposed concrete; perfect, much-desired age likely from an entire life outdoors. Exceptional, spirited examples of Primitive-meets-modern sculpture, great for display indoors or out. Measures: Trylon: 21.25" H x 9" W x 8" D. Perisphere: 12" H x 10.5" D.
