Canada – Ontario III

Skyline view of my hometown of Toronto, with the CN Tower – world's tallest freestanding structure for a great many years until recently out-scaled by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai – in the background and the Royal Ontario Museum in the foreground with its controversial addition, the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, engulfing the original Beaux Arts building. The museum is one of the largest in North America, hosting more than one million visitors per year, and is particularly well-known for its collections of fossils and East Asian art.

Stamp on the left from the 2012 Christmas series featuring Christmas cookies. Stamp on the right is from the ongoing Art Canada series. The 2012 release features the work of Joe Fafard, a Saskatchewan-based sculptor whose work often deals with the Prairie environment.
