Is That His Hand or What?
The Truro Power Centre's 12-metre statue of Glooscap, legendary symbol of the Mi'kmaq, will soon lose an unwanted illusory protrusion.
Some motorists travelling Highway 104 toward Truro claim the statue looks like it has an appendage not intended by its sculptor emerging from its midriff.
Ribald humour and giggling 10-year-olds aside, the illusion is being taken seriously.
"We may have to take the arm off and get it bent up a little bit more and get his fingers on a staff with an eagle on the end of it, to take that illusion away," said Lawrence Paul, chief of Millbrook First Nation.The chief said Monday that Atlantex Creative Works in Chezzetcook will make a staff to put in the statue's hand, thereby eliminating any illusion
