During the last week of September 2002, the first of the public art projects commissioned by the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art was installed on a vacant lot in the city, at the corner of SW Taylor and 3rd Avenue.
On the lot itself Daniel Duford kiln-fired three huge crouching figures, golems.
On one of the adjacent buildings, on the wall facing 3rd Avenue, he painted two more figures, large male nudes with the same physique. They stood looking outward, with open hands.
The installation was intended to last a month. Vandals immediately attacked it and by the fourth night the figures had all been smashed.
