Daily Flag 19 on Friday, December 19 at 47 Leuty by The Stanschus Family. 16”x20” Original photography printed on canvas. All that glitters is not gold. Daily Flag 19 depicts a typical Canadian winter scene: the Christmas star is ablaze against a background of a pristine lake in the winter wonderland of the True North. However, on closer inspection you will see that not all the bulbs are lit – is it because the flagmakers couldn’t find replacement bulbs? No, it’s because they wanted to relay a message to us: even though most of us would count ourselves as incredibly lucky to live in Toronto, we all know that life is never perfect, and that we live amongst many people who struggle to afford to buy food to fulfill their basic human needs. Its wonderful to celebrate all that is great about Christmas and Canada, but we should also stop to think about those who are less fortunate, and try to do our bit to help. SOLD $200
