On Saturday, May 5th (2012) the Shangri-La Toronto unveiled its street-side art installation by renowned artist Zhang Huan.

The 22-tonne, stainless-steel sculpture is titled ‘Rising’ and is valued at an estimated $4-million to $6-million.

Huan’s work can also be seen at the AGO, where a number of his recent ash paintings (made with authentic incense ash collected from Buddhist temples) are on display.
