On a recent trip to Galiano Island, I stopped by the Galiano Inn & Spa to check out the Kunamokst Mural Mosaic on display in their lobby.
It's impressive! The mural combines the work of nearly 200 artists (including some big-time names, such as Robert Bateman and Roy Vickers), and spans the width of the lobby. Up close, each panel is an individual work of art, but take a few steps back and it melds into a large Orca mural.
I had convinced a couple of friends that it was worth checking it out, and they both ended up being quite impressed by the detail and illusion created by the artwork.
This mural is a must-see for Galiano visitors... and the Sturdies Bay bakery is just down the street for a post-mural snack.
