Celebrate Canadian hockey and family togetherness. Artist John Mantha has imagined a warm winter scene where a woman holds up a child, wobbly on their skates, as they practise holding a stick on the ice. We can feel the weight of our own family, in memory, and the rising joy of confidence in the child. The evergreens at the periphery cast shadows on the ice, which spotlight the quiet magic of this moment.
