Here are some misc photographs that I took in Toronto.
This was one of the most beautiful buildings in Toronto. A warm, brick building with stone foundations. Lovely windows, a sloped roof. Excellent.
In the portico of the office, there is this bunch of sculptures on the Sedna Legend.
Took these with my iphone so the quality is a bit dodgy, but the story on the plaque says: “Sedna was a little girl, harshly treated by her people, who abandoned her as they moved in their boats to find better hunting grounds. She swam after them but as she grasped a boat, a cruel paddler severed her fingers to keep her from coming abroad. As the fingers floated into the depths, the Great maker transformed them into the earth’s creatures – seals, whales, walruses and bears. So great was the evil perpetrated upon Sedna that she became Goddess and Mistress over them all. When people are wicked towards one another and show disrespect for their land, she withholds the creatures so that the land starves. The sins of the people become tangles in her flowing hair. Since she has no fingers, A Shaman, a man entrusted with the spiritual care of each community, must then descend into the depths and comb the evil of human injustice from her tresses. Only then does she release the creatures to roam and the land again becomes bountiful”. Fascinating.
