'Cat on a globe', Kensington Market, D. Hlynsky- S. Yanover 2000. If you walk with your head high, you may see it!

Cat on a globe. The globe in “Jiggity Jig” suppose to symbolize the fact, that people come to Kensington from all over the world. As in: what did the cat drag in!

Immigrants have always been part of this market. It was called the jewish market when I arrived in Toronto. The Jewish shop owners were displaced by the Portuguese in the 70's and later by Jamaicans. There is now Chinese and Hispanic presence and slow but steady increase of trendy cafes and restaurants, which is going to transform this market just to another hip area, unless economy condition prevents it.

Jiggity-Jig by David Hlynsky & Shirley Yanover about year 2000.

......My daughter would probably call this sculpture: "Cats dominate this world!"
