Carrying on where we left off yesterday, here are more of the totem poles in the Grand Hall.
There is a sculpture outside the building in a reflecting pool, viewable from within, with a display panel explaining about it. It is titled 'namaxsala (To Travel In A Boat Together), by the First Nations artist Mary Anne Barkhouse, and was created in 2013. It is drawn from a story of her grandfather, helping a wolf cross a stretch of water in a canoe. With the backdrop of the Ottawa River down the slope, along with the Alexandra Bridge, it makes a pleasing photograph to look at from inside or out.
