The sculpture will become one of the legacies of the 2015 Canada Winter Games and close to 1,500 rocks, of all sizes, from all over the country will eventually find a home inside the metal sculpture. The new artwork which has the maple leaf sitting on a First Nations drum, was unveiled in a special outdoor ceremony attended by Mayor Lyn Hall and several council members, Studio 2880 artist and executive director Wendy Young, Mike Davis, Games executive and several other dignitaries.
