Next Mural From The Old Mill

This is the next mural painted by First Nation artist Philip Cote on the supports of the Old Mill subway station along the Humber River trail. It is a continuation of the Anishnaabe creation story that he has been telling through these murals. Once more his colours and images are wonderful.  You can see the previous murals by clicking the Old Mill label below.

What a great image. The turtle has cultural significance around the world. In China it is the symbol of longevity. Have a great Sunday.

The turtle is a big part of First Nations culture, so this certainly fits into that.

The turtle and other creatures are running in a circle, which must be an important part of the creation story. It is a superb mural and with great detail and wondrous colors!

Another beautiful mural! I've heard North America called "Turtle Island" but can't say more about the context of a creation story.

Beautiful!!!! Awww, thank you. Here it´s still dark and likely the sun will be blocked by clouds (no rain, sadly), but you just gave me a color-boost :-)
