Terra Incognita is an outdoor 1995 sculpture by Israeli artist Ilan Averbuch, located at the foot of the Broadway Bridge in Portland, Oregon.

Description and history

Terra Incognita, designed by Ilan Averbuch, was installed at North Broadway and North Larrabee Avenue, at the foot of the Broadway Bridge, in Portland's Rose Quarter in 1995. The gate-like sculpture is made from steel, wood, stone and copper, and measures 15 feet (4.6 m) x 40 feet (12 m) x 6 feet (1.8 m).[1][2] It forms five cubes in a "strong positive negative pattern".[2] The three base cubes are bundled tree trunks, and the two cubes suspended by the lower three are stone piles. According to the Regional Arts & Culture Council, which administer the sculpture:

This work relates to its site in a broad context. It plays off the power of the natural landscape, the rivers, hillsides and mountains, as well as the power and scale of the man-made elements such as surrounding bridges and buildings. Averbuch felt that the dramatic relationship between wood and stone are appropriate for Portland. This sculpture has a feeling of fortification and frontier, elements the artist associates with Oregon.[2]

It is part of the City of Portland and Multnomah County Public Art Collection courtesy of the Regional Arts & Culture Council.[3]
