Glooscap (updated)

Carl very cleverly comments to ask why I posted a photo of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle on my blog... I wasn't aware when I mobile-blogged this picture from my Blackberry on a grey day how little detail of this statue was going to come out!

This is a 12-metre (40 foot) high statue of Glooscap, (the first human, according to Mik'maq legend). He stands watch over an impressive collection of Millbrook First Nation-owned businesses (everything from a multiplex cinema to a furniture store, gas station and restaurants) and a Mik'maq heritage centre that bears his name, all clustered off the highway just outside Truro, Nova Scotia. We stopped there on our way back from a four-day visit to the southwest end of Nova Scotia, including Yarmouth and the Annapolis Valley, about which more blogged later.

Why did you post a silhouette of one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
