I am happy to announce that I have now completed this mandala with the toll keeper's cottage at the centre. There were 4 toll keeper cottages from the Humber to the Don Rivers. It was a privately owned road in the 1800's and travellers had to pay a toll to go along this trail.
I have also included bits of Seaton, Oakwood
, Bracondale, Earlscourt, and Carlton Villages.
This mandala celebrates the many layers of peoples ( and a dinosaur ) who have walked this passage on the shore if Lake Iroquois.
You will be able to imagine that you are walking back and forth through the centuries on this mandala.
