Juxtaposition


Here is a fossil of a giant sea scorpion found in North American waters millions of years ago.

Here is indigenous artist Norval Morrisseau’s painting of the water panther god Misshipehu. It moved through the same waters as the ancient sea scorpion.
The two items are displayed near each other at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Can you see any resemblance?
