A new piece of artwork celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday was unveiled on August 19th at the Okanagan Lavender and Herb Farm.
The sculpture’s round sphere acts as a representation of a country of people from all over the world, while the tipi represents the indigenous peoples’ shoulders that the country was built upon. It also represents the celebration of people and the welcoming of those seeking asylum from other countries. Surrounding the piece of art are 13 figures, each representing a different province and territory.
The artist behind the masterpiece is Annabel Stanley, who created it using materials found in their vineyard.
