Maybe its my monitor calibration, but I thought the Oscar Peterson statue outside the NAC was bronze. This almost looks silver in colour (pewterish).

Also, perhaps it’s just the shadowing or an affect of missing the rest of the statue to give context (him seated at his piano) but closeup and out of context he looks creepy!

That’s a black and white image converted to duotone, so it doesn’t retain any of the original colour of the statue.

He looks pretty creepy in general to me, sitting beside the piano that plays without him ever touching it.
