Canadian artist Laurie McGaw has created a fun and uplifting collage of the places and things that make Canada great. Clockwise from the top: hockey sticks and puck, snowflakes, polar bear, inukshuk, Parliament Hill, Canadian flag, maple syrup, lighthouse, lobster traps, toboggan, Canada goose, canoe, beaver, moose, black spruce tree, Beaver plane, salmon, wheat, cowboy boot, mountains. The elements are roughly placed in an east/west/north/south orientation to reflect their location on a Canadian map. Together, they encircle a maple leaf that is the heart of the design—and the heart of this nation. Proudly engraved with “150 YEARS/ANS”.
