I took photos of these breathtaking native murals on a recent walk through downtown Victoria (my home town).
They're part of a 250-metre long panel of First Nations murals that were erected in a celebratory countdown to the completion of an 11-year-old undertaking to clean up the very toxic land and seabed of Rock Bay.
The murals, running along Pembroke and Government Street, are a reminder to keep our land clean and healthy. They were painted by 16 members of a First Nations youth group and were based on the designs of Butch Dick and Darlene Gait.
They are absolutely stunning and bring a much-needed beauty to a less-than-pristine area of our city.
