Public Art in Iqaluit

So... here we are at "four corners" in iqaluit, in front of the Royal Bank Building (which has NTI in it).  It also has the Baffin Coffee Shop (that has a mean spicy beef wrap!)  The awesome security guy for the building (with his wonderful dapper white hat) volunteered to take my photo for me (when i was busy trying to get close ups).

And here are some of the closeup shots.  I love the person on top, trying to balance rocks for an inukshuk.

  In this one, you can catch a sense of how much fog there was (because of a 13 mile wide pan of ice clogging the harbour... warm air would hit the ice, and then do its thing!)   I love all the animals worked into this sculpture.

This is the sculpture in front of the Legislature (just down the street... the Canadian flag in the photo above is the same one you can see in the back left corner here.
The front of the sculpture (oops... didn't get it all in) is in 4 languages!

Was trying to get my head in there, so i could be one of 'the people'.  :-)
