Khenko celebrates the return of the heron to the waters of False Creek after many years of industrial pollution.
This artwork takes it’s origin form the genre of early Canadiana folk objects depicting flying birds.
200 years ago these were often crafted at home and erected in the back yard.
In high force winds the sails govern themselves by planing and doing 360’s.
