Inspiration for Parliament Gate 



This block is based on a stone motif in the gates at Canada's Parliament buildings. I live in Ottawa and work just a few blocks away from Parliament Hill, so I often walk around the grounds at lunch time. I'm always inspired by the architecture and the little details in iron work and stone carvings - and wanted to share a piece of this inspiration for The Canadian Sampler.
