I had a little time to myself over last weekend in Toronto, so I took the opportunity to catch up with some culture. For this trip I visited the Museum of Inuit Art, which is in the Queen’s Quay building down by the lake shore. I was very impressed. There are some magnificent sculptures there. Several of them looked very much like they had come straight out of Mythago Wood, which was a strange experience, and I guess shows that Rob got the shamanistic element of the book very right.
One of the favorite subjects for sculptures is Sedna the Sea Goddess, who is a mermaid.
Visitors were allowed to take photos as long as they did not use flash, so here are some things to whet your appetite.
