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.
