Description: This mural depicts different coloured hands sewing a quilted blanket under which children are asleep. The quilt contains a number of symbols and motifs from a variety of cultures including African, middle eastern, Native American, as well as local and familiar images such as Sumac, Loon and dove. The message behind this concept speaks to the many cultures that have been working alongside each other, collaborating and weaving traditions in order to create a happy and prosperous life for themselves, each other and the future generations. This is the beauty of Canada, especially Toronto and neighbourhoods such as Oakwood Village where many diverse communities call home.
