Curious Figures

A mysterious trio of figures stands just opposite the Whitney M. Young Health Services complex in Arbor Hill. Each figure has two faces, one looking outward and one looking inward.

They have stood at this corner of Lark Drive for at least twenty-five years since I remember seeing them once or twice when I was still in grade school. The faces were clearer then and I vaguely recall the outer faces might shown phases of the moon.

After I took this picture recently, I looked around the statues, but here is no plaque or marker naming this odd sculpture or its creator.
