Starting where I left off yesterday, here are more of the tulips outside the curatorial and exhibition wings of the Museum of History. Terrace space between the wings gives the visitor a view of Parliament Hill across the Ottawa River.
I headed towards the stairs. There was one last tulip bed, down along the river pathway.
This art sculpture is visible from within and outside the museum. Mary Anne Barkhouse created namaxsala (To Travel In A Boat Together) in 2013. It draws on her First Nations background and a family story of providing a wolf with transport across icy waters.
The Missinaibi is a boat of history now part of the museum collection and located here on the grounds. Canadians may remember it as it graced one side of the last one dollar bill. More on that tomorrow.
The path led me to this particularly pretty bed of tulips along the river. We'll look at it tomorrow.
As usual wonderful photos. I especially like the sculpture by first nation artist Mary Anne BarkhouseReplyDelete
Unusual to be able to see a sculpture from both the inside and outside of a museum. I like the fact that it has a story bringing it to life. Once again the tulips are amazing.ReplyDelete
Art and nature! :-)ReplyDelete
Um abraço e boa semana.
