Plaque for the sculpture

Mark Calderon's Floribunda (1998) is a bronze sculpture installed at the southwest corner of the intersection of Southwest 5th Avenue and Stark Street in the Portland Transit Mall. The sculpture, part of a series of works created by Calderon in the 1990s based on hairstyles found in 12th- and 13th-century Japanese Buddhist sculpture,[1] measures 23 inches (58 cm) x 23.5 inches (60 cm) x 23.5 inches (60 cm).[2] Floribunda is the only free-standing piece from the series, but according to the Regional Arts & Culture Council, which administers the work, "much of his work from that period was inspired by religious images of ancient cultures and consisted of larger than life-size pieces—head-like in form—meant to be displayed on a wall".[2] The sculpture is part of the City of Portland and Multnomah County Public Art Collection courtesy of the Regional Arts & Culture Council.[3]
