Independence Square, Charlotte, NC.

In Charlotte NC, a while back I happened to wander around the downtown and arrived at this very interesting crossroad - The Independence Square. I must admit I had to look it up to learn its significance.
What fascinated me were these two sculptures, surprisingly abstract & modern, as they remain juxtaposed along sides of four very historic pillared statues with personified tittles as "Transportation", "Future", "Commerce" and "Industry". This contrast is an art delight and architecturally playful.
