As I was wandering in downtown Tacoma
a couple of days ago,
I stumbled onto this piece of public art
on Broadway near American Art Company.
I'd never noticed it before.
The bronze marker adjacent to the piece says:
Ha Hway (Bride) Mask
The bride dancer, symbolizing a new generation
and life style, usually dances with an old man --
representing old values and ways.
Oh! Young bride!
Dancing new life --
She is dancing
with the shadow
of the old man
of the past.
