Wonderland Sculpture is a 12-meter tall public art piece, which is made by the Spanish sculptor, Jaume Plensa. Wonderland is a wire mesh sculpture of a little girl's head, which is located at the base of the tallest tower in Calgary, The Bow. The major attraction of Wonderland is that the visitors can walk through the model, which has two openings allowing the viewers to enter. It is said that the shape of the sculpture was actually inspired by a girl in Spain, and the objective of the sculpture is to inspire everyone who sees it as a true representation of the architecture of our own bodies, the palace of our dreams. The sculpture truly represents the dreams and hopes of the young people and airs fresh youthful energy of the tenants. The entrance to the sculpture is at the neck region, through which the viewers can wander inside and see how it looks from inside.
The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
