Here are some more views from the Great Hall in the Museum of History. This space, filled with totem poles and First Nations decorations, as well as exhibit space behind the wall, is often used for official state occasions and performances. It was a busy place on Canada Day.
At the south end of the Hall, one can look up- seven stories up, actually- to the dome, where this striking abstract mural has been painted. Morning Star is a work by the Dene artist Alex Janvier, and it is breathtaking to take in. It was done in 1993, covers an area of 418 square metres, and is brilliantly colourful.
