Inclined Sculpture

I found this sculpture while walking along the Oklahoma City Riverwalk the other day. Its name is "Inclined," and it was commissioned by the city. The nearby Deep Deuce neighborhood was a thriving African-American area, and Bricktown was a warehouse district with loading docks and railroads. The Sisyphus-like image reminds visitors to Bricktown of the history of the people and the neighborhood.
