Jaguar Throne by Peter Morales

Much like Craig David’s “Peace Table”, I think “Jaguar Throne” created by Peter Morales in 2001 in St. Paul’s Western Sculpture Park is another great example of functional art. Why have just a bench when you can have a work of art? And why have another work of art that you’re not supposed to touch?

“Jaguar Throne” is inviting. Can you imagine a child not trying to climb on it? And the jaguar’s smile reminds me of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Art should always be this fun.
