Description:

"Transcendental Greens" are the silhouettes of gigantic leaf forms cut from aluminum and polychromed by the artist Dan George. Nine of the leaf forms are attached to columns inside the Forest Hills station of the Orange Line. Others can be found along the approach to the station. The big green leaves link the station with the nearby open spaces of Franklin Park and the Arnold Arboretum.
