WASCANA PARK

Bronze equestrian statue of Queen Elizabeth II overseeing the Queen Elizabeth II Gardens. The statue was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth II on May 18, 2005, during the Province’s Centennial Year. Saskatchewan sculptor, Susan Velder, created the larger than life bronze statue of the Queen riding her favourite horse, Burmese. Once a famous addition to the RCMP Musical Ride, Burmese was presented to the Queen in 1967. Burmese became a favourite mount and Her Majesty rode her for many ceremonial duties.

Great street art
Really nice street art you have found. I went on a street art tour in London last year and a new world opened up for me. There is some really good art out there, easy accessible and easy to appreciate./Ake

Street art
I'm not sure where you're from, but if you ever get to Paris, check the SE suburb of Vitry-sur-Seine. It's famous for its street art ;o) I think Europe is well advanced in regards to street art/artists ;o)

Street art in Paris
We live in Sweden and Paris we have visited more than once and we are sure to return there again. I have made a note about the area with the street art. We might make it our mission to go there. /Ake
