Muskie by Norman Knott
In one hallway on the ground floor of Southlake Hospital's east wing, there's a collection of paintings by First Nation artist Norman Knott.
Note: I see the flash on my point and shoot has left a bright spot on the glass in front of the painting. Sorry!
Explanation on the wall near the painting: "Painted in 1978, 'Muskie' represents Norman's finest example of the interdependence of all living things. Man depends on fish for food; fish depends on water for it's home and food. Although he has painted half a fish, we have the illusion of viewing a whole fish in action. Of the two images of man, the second image is to remind us that man also depends on water as much of our bodies consist of water."
