Two metallic stallions take fantasy fulfillment to the next level
With its recent reno, CF Sherway Gardens moves ever closer to becoming a real-life dreamland. In the mall’s east wing, two steel stallion sculptures – collectively dubbed The Miracle – look to have galloped in from some magical forest. Artist John McEwen, best known for the torch sculptures in front of the Air Canada Centre, formed the mare and foal by welding thousands of laser-etched steel stars into place atop giant plaster casts.
