Iron Glyphs

Detail from a cast iron column at Ankeny Square near Skidmore Fountain in downtown Portland. The square displays ornamental pieces taken from historic buildings that no longer exist.

  5. Almost looks like calligraphy in iron...or something written in Japanese...whatever it conjures up, it's beautiful.
