Title: Respect

The mural Lorne created is actually 2 murals. One eagle over each doorway. The eagle is one of Lorne’s favourite subjects and an important animal for the Mi’kmaw people. The eagle (kitpu) stands for respect, love and protection. When an eagle appears in the sky it is a good sign, maybe a sign that a good decision was made or that the path chosen is a good one. This is a good moment for gratitude and to make a tobacco offering to the creator. Lorne’s murals create a space for good decision making and reflection. Upon entering we are reminded of good values and intentions, call in higher powers and show gratitude. There is a double curved design in the bottom of the murals. This is commonly used by Mi’kmaq artists and crafters.
