CANOE FAN HAS FOUND A PERMANENT HOME. It was purchased by the city of Ann Arbor, so it will remain in its beautiful setting along the Huron River in Gallop Park.
The design brings to mind the sun on the horizon, peacock feathers spreading, a flower unfolding, a Native American Headdress.
“The holes are a design element that renders the canoes useless, and allows wind to pass through. Boats symbolize passage from one world into the next. It is a portal and symbol of passage, unfolding, flowering.”
