I discovered this beautiful image painted on a cliff beside the MacDonald-Cartier Freeway (Hwy 400) in Ontario, near Wahta Mohawk Territory.

There is only a narrow shoulder at the site and as traffic raced by I braved the shot but rushed it. I didn't see the flat stone lower-right, the artist's signature perhaps, until I cropped this shot.

Looks like I need to make another trip to the near north, be braver about the traffic and climb the rock to see if it actually is a signature. This artist deserves acknowledgement for such a spectacular and powerful image.
