'Between' by Adolf Ryszka (1935-1995) of Poland was made in travertine for the Stone Sculpture Symposium in 1975. The artist noted, "I would like to feel that the particle of my personality left in the park in Vancouver will remain a symbol of understanding with all those who will meet my stone there."
Adolf Ryszka studied sculpture in Poland, and in 1965 he became a member of the Association of Polish Artists and later managed the Department of Sculpture at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland. He died in 1995 and is buried at a military cemetery in Warsaw.
