Visitors to Tsawwassen Mills are greeted as they enter the Coast Salish Neighbourhood by the stunning view of these two, leaping salmon, historically important symbols of the Tsawwassen First Nation local culture. The artists explored various shapes, orientation, and arrangement, and as a result of the exploration and design process, employed innovative contemporary materials. The woven bronze metal assembly is symbolic of the legendary Coast Salish woven baskets. The rainbow of colors cast by the dichroic glass panels offer a dynamic and colorful representation of fish scales.
