One of two Bufano "Cat" sculptures is seen in the lower right of this image. When the open-air center was enclosed and climate-controlled in the early 1980s, all statuary was moved to new locations inside the mall.

The title of this work is "Seal". Animal sculptures were a standard feature in several of America's early shopping malls. They were used extensively at complexes such as Greater Detroit's NORTHLAND CENTER, Atlanta's LENOX SQUARE and Greater Miami's NORTHSIDE CENTER.
