People of the Dawn

Mural for the 2010 Winter Olympics in British Columbia, Canada

      This mural consists of twelve 4' x 8' panels featuring a cross-section of Indigenous Mi'kmaq symbols, including baskets made from porcupine quills and images from petroglyphs such as butterflies, moose and caribou.  The Mi'kmaq were renowned for their porcupine quill baskets which were so widely traded that even Queen Victoria owned one.  Petroglyphs found widely throughout Canada may be a few hundred years old, but the symbos they illustrate are truly ancient, and form the oldest visual record of Mi'kmaq culture.  This work was created for the 2010 Winter Olympics to represent the Mi'ikmaq culture from the East Coast of Canada.
