More from MosaiCanada today. Two sculptures feature here.
The Polar Bear represents Manitoba.
Looking back gives us a different perspective of The Three Ships From France.
The Puffins represent the province of Newfoundland & Labrador, and were getting a bath by one of the groundskeepers while I was here.
This sculpture is one that doesn't represent a province or territory, but does evoke the far north with the combination of aurora borealis, inukshuk, and wolf. It is titled A Story Of The Northern Lights: Howling Wolf.
The Prospector is the title of this topiary for the Yukon, bringing back to life the vivid days of the Klondike gold rush.
The Muskoxen is the title for this set, done for the Northwest Territories.
Here we have a view looking back over several. The one on the left represents Nunavut, and is titled The Drum Dancer.
Moving out of the first theme, we have two sculptures thematically paired as An Excursion In China. Representing Beijing is Blessing Of The Good Omen Dragons.
While Shanghai is represented by this work, titled Joyful Celebration Of The Nine Lions.
