Rabbits and Roses

On the deck of a footbridge across the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, the art work reflects the context of locality.

The wild rose is the emblem of the province of Alberta, and the snowshoe hare is a very jumpy prairie rabbit with powerful hing legs.

If a parallel footbridge existed to cross the Fraser River were similarly decorated, it could have a dogwood flower and a very different looking rabbit: a cute little brown one.
