Twisty Street Lights

A street corner in downtown Lexington has two old-fashioned-looking streetlights that are twisted together. I walked around the area for about two hours and these were the only two that I saw like this. It must be some type of public art but I could find no identifying sign near them.

The artwork by Pieke Bergman, titled "Totally in Love," suggests that the streetlights are positioned for a kiss, like the sailor and nurse in the Unconditional Surrender sculpture. If you look closely, you can see that the lamp globes bulge toward each other.
