Tesla statue in Niagara Falls

A statue of Nikola Tesla made by the artist Les Drysdale was unveiled at Niagara Falls on July 9th, 2006. Tesla stands on an AC motor, his cane sketching out the AC polyphase system in the sand. This appeared to Tesla in a flash of thoughts while he was walking in a park in Budapest. Les Drysdale is a well-known sculptor with public commissions in Toronto, Burlington, Hamilton and Stoney Creek. Speaking of his design Drysdale said: “Tesla is sculpted, as he would have appeared in 1896, age 39, about the time his inventions were being used to create The Niagara Falls Power station. My intention is to show the mystery that is his mind, developing an abstract idea from the theoretical to the concrete, as most of his inventions were developed entirely from start to precise completion in his head,” states Drysdale.
