Scarborough Mandala Completed : " Sunrise On the Bluffs "

My Scarborough mandala was finally completed on Friday, November 18, 2011 after 3 months of
diligent work.  I have named it " Sunrise on the Bluffs " and hope that it captures the essence of Scarborough from early settlements up until now.  I have devoted a generous section to the Bluffs,
which includes wildlife, Bluffers Beach and the marina.
The Metro Toronto Zoo includes the penguins who like to hang out...Pedro and Buddy.

Guildwood Park and the Inn and the Thompson and McCowan families are well-represented, with other early settlers mentioned.
Many cultures are represented through foods and faces.  A horse and buggy climbing over/up the bluffs represents the difficult task our forefathers had in settling the land.                                                              
First Nations People are represented by a spiritual drum and campfire on the bluffs as well as a wigwam and several birch bark canoes in  Lake Ontario.                                                                                            
So many other aspects of the Scarborough Community have been noted and this mandala provides an overview of the area.
