Artwork StatementLAPD Landscape Architects Inc. approached John Mallory of 3D Custom Foam Inc. in Burnaby about constructing a dragon sculpture as part of the design for the corner of Pandora Avenue and Government Street. LAPD Landscape Architects Inc. had the concept and dimensions in mind and at a meeting with John, one of his designers (Ping Tsing) quickly drew up a pencil sketch of our idea, which was approved; the client comissioned 3D Foam to construct it. It was hand carved by Ping Tsing from high density foam. - Bev Windjack, LAPD Landscape Architects Inc. 2B - 495 Dupplin Road, Victoria BC V8Z 1B8 250 598-0105
