With tomorrow's theme day before us, I have some shots taken in May. Another from this series will feature into tomorrow's theme day, but I wanted to present these as well. This is a view looking across to the north end of Major's Hill Park from the path coming down from Nepean Point. There's a statue positioned across the gap.
It is the statue of an Anishinaabe scout. The sculpture originally stood up at Nepean Point, at the foot of the monument to Samuel de Champlain. You can see the Champlain statue in the background of this shot, taken from the south side of the statue. The scout was moved over here after concerns from First Nations elders that its placement gave the image of subservience to a white explorer. The sculpture does stand out well here, and the visitor can walk around it, taking in the surroundings, which include Parliament Hill, the park, and the National Gallery.
