"Jiggity Jig"

This sculpture of a cat on a globe is found on a pole at the southern entrance, on Dundas St, into the Kensington Market neighbourhood, probably the most eclectic area in the city. The title Jiggity Jig comes from the nursery rhyme "To Market" and the globe represents the fact that Kensington Market is full of people and shops from all over the world while the cat represents the comforts of home that are found there. The artists are David Hlynsky and Shirley Yanover who have done pieces at the other entrances to the market as well.

Nice find Pat. Kensington Market is a fascinating place. The cat sculpture proves it. Every time I go there I always find something that missed last time.

Great photo! Didn't manage to get to Kensington Market on my last visit to Toronto, but it will be top of my list for my next visit!

Thank you for the explanation. I have a picture of my late husband under that sculpture and have always wondered what it meant.

Intriguing. You must have stared at that pole for a while, trying to figure out how to shoot it.
