Thomas Cannell, a Coast Salish artist, wandered through Deer Lake Park and the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts to develop his concept for Burnaby's newest public art piece.
What he saw, everywhere, were families.
Vitality, which was installed on Wednesday, is representative of a family journey, Cannell Said.
Each roughewn column depicts different aspects of the family, sculpted into the stone using a variety of techniques.
