Three Dimensional Object
Portland Public Library Special Collections & Archives
This bronze sculpture was commissioned by the family of Agavney Johnson in her memory, and presented to the Library in 1984. The work is inspired by Armenian calligraphy, and its title refers to a traditional Armenian folktale ending: “Three apples fell from heaven: one for the story teller, one for the listener and one for the whole world.”
