Theme Day - "The Beauty of Simplicity"

The April theme for the City Daily Photo Blog community is 'the Beauty of Simplicity'. Getting ready for this theme I realized that my very urban surroundings are not very simple and are actually quite crowded with buildings, trees, etc.  I did find this art piece in The Veterans centre at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre which struck me as a great example of how well a simple image can work. The piece was done by Inuit artists in 1970 and consists of appliqués of sealskin onto wool felt. Each individual image in this "Arctic Winter Hunting" piece is quite simple but very effective don't you think?
