Heritage

Canada, like the rest of the New World, is a country of immigrants. We believe that we gain from our diversity and we continue to welcome immigrants.  It’s part of our heritage Morning Star illustrates the history of the land we live in from the artist’s Dene Suline perspective and expresses hope of mutual respect.   Please click on image for a better view.

Alex Janvier’s masterpiece Morning Star, painted in 1993, adorns the dome of the River Salon in the Museum of History in Ottawa. The mural rises seven stories above the salon and covers 418 m2. Janvier completed the work in just over three months, with the help of his son Dean.   http://www.historymuseum.ca/morningstar/
