Lovely, and simple, and interesting. This thumbnail definitely needs to be opened to appreciate it. Lucky Vancouver, and lucky you for seeing this one Theolfa :)

Greetings, Amelia

Lucky Vancouver, indeed. Haida Indian art is flourishing and I'm sure most people have seen at least one picture of a totem pole. Cheers! Theolfa

I should have read your first reply Theolfa. That will teach me!! :)

Sometimes, we are so busy looking at the pictures, we neglect the prose, and that's sometimes saves us from being influenced by other peoples opinions. Your opinion matters. Theolfa

This is interesting. This manhole cover is actually a piece of genuine art. I wonder what the figures mean.

Hi, Marianne! I was so mpressed with Vancouver's artistic manhole covers, I believe they are all different and chosen from a design competition. I am guessing this is a Haida design and it looks like four whales with faces inside. I wish I knew more. Cheers! Theolfa

Druella Ceville on January 14, 2012

Whales? Hm. Looks like cod to me :-DD

Theolfa on January 17, 2012

I don't think there is cod on the Pacific coast, Marianne, but let's just call them very big fish ;D
