When I took this shot of "The Knife" (AKA "The Scalpel") in 1986, this sculpture was situated on an isolated stretch of the Corniche Road. I have since seen an illustration of it included in a city-wide urban renewal plan online document. I knew almost nothing about its meaning or about the inscriptions on its base.
