"Moose in The City"
For 6 months in 2000 there was a city-wide show of 326 life-size moose sculptures that had each been decorated by artists. Unfortunately the antlers became prized trophies and it was difficult to find a moose with its antlers intact. After the event many of the moose were auctioned off for charity while others can still be found sprinkled about town. Imagine the shock of spotting these 2 moose (with antlers) on the roof of a front porch of a relatively small semi-detached home in mid-town. One is painted as a Toronto Maple Leaf (our beloved hockey team) and the other as a Toronto Blue Jay (our baseball team). I really wonder what the neighbours think of this one!
