Long Description:
On the steps of the Andrew A. Philipsen Law Centre on Second Avenue. This grouping of figures is based on geographical formations found on the Dempster Highway. It also suggests the way that people might gather on the steps of the courthouse for discussion.

From a distance these figures appear larger than life, but they are actually much smaller. In fact, their heads are much too small for their bulky bodies. According to Alyx Jones, this size discrepancy illustrates the gap between the ideal and the actual practice of law.

The figures were made from tyndall and limestone. Look closely to see fossils in the stone.
