Details

This shot shows some of the details found above the door in yesterday's post. Since the building was originally built to showcase Ontario provincial exhibits it looks as if these panels are depicting types of industry found in the province. The one on the left looks like the lumber industry, the middle one is mining while the one on the right is a mystery to me. I couldn't figure it out at all. I do like this type of carving though.

Yes, I do love murals and carvings that are historical markers. I also am intrigues by the heads on each side of the arch.

I'm not sure what they could be doing either, but I like it too!

So beautiful! I think it might be fishing...looks like they're hauling in a net.

I wonder if it might be agriculture- cutting grain in the old fashioned way.

From an era when engraving art onto buildings was common.

Christine said...

Very well done! I enjoy seeing ornate details. Might the mystery panel have anything to do with fabrics as they seem to have a large cloth.

Wonderful details, Lowell could be right, the fishing industry? Happy weekend Pat ✨

I love panels like this that tell a story. I was going to guess fishing too. I also like those two heads below.

Sailmaking?

I dunno, it looks a tad bit pornographic to me.

I don't know what they are doing, but it took a lot of talent to make.

I love those details. The engraving is stunning and beautiful. I can't tell what the last panel is either. In any case, it's all very impressive.

I like the arches too.

My first guess was that they're all working on building something! But all the detail is just priceless!
