Departing from seeing the documentary film as noted in yesterday's post, I paused to photograph this view below. A dog sleigh team is mounted above the Museum's box office, legacy of a bygone era of Arctic exploration.
Close by is an item I usually see late in a visit to the Museum. Chief Of The Undersea World is a plaster cast version of the sculpture by Haida artist Bill Reid. This stylized killer whale occupies a portion of this level directly over the Museum's main entrance.
The escalator down from here gives us a first view of the dramatic Grand Hall, boasting a six story high curving window, featuring totem poles and six Houses of the Pacific Coast. We'll carry on here tomorrow.
