This stylized map of Europe appears on the floor of this area of the ROM. While I was passing through, one of the museum staffers was speaking with a small group of people nearby, hence the chairs.
A statue of the Virgin Mary with child can be found nearby, one of several sculptures here.
Also present in this part of the museum are a series of rooms, behind glass, decorated in the fashion of the time or the country, each of them different in turn.
The lavish decor from an earlier era makes for an interesting area to pass through. Though perhaps little ones might be looking for the dinosaurs.
Moving out from Europe tomorrow, for a step into nature, so to speak...
