This sculpture installation at Sturgus Park on north Beacon Hill is called "Equality" and was created and sited in 1995-1996 by Beacon Hill artists Rolon Bert Garner and Ken Leback. There is a granite house missing in the left of the frame, but not far away on a pedistal on a raised knoll there is a bronze house overlooking these houses with the city skyline beyond. You can read a thought- provoking quote from Alexis de Tocqueville’s "Democracy in America" on an embedded bronze plaque. An overview of the entire installation is here.
