World Montage & All Blues
1991

Fisherville School
Toronto, Ontario
The entire school helped carve two poles. "World Montage" was designed from drawings that the students provided on the theme of "what is most important to you." Since a majority of the children had recently immigrated from Russia, the immigration experience was dominant in most drawings. Flying to Canada - their first flight. Tall apartment towers - their new home. Circle dance - Jewish culture.

"All Blues" was carved as a tribute to Miles Davis (in the year of his death).
