October Theme Day: Shelter

For the past year, the federal court building has been undergoing
renovation, maintenance and restoration.
Earlier this spring, I found stonemasons grinding out and 
replacing the old grout between the limestone and granite slabs
that make up the surface of the structure.
To protect the sculptures that greet visitors at the main
entrances, shelters have been constructed to protect
them from falling objects, be they stone, dirt, or human.

With similar scaffolding up around portions of our Parliament Buildings, similar measures are being taken with some of the sculptures as well. I really like that sculpture.

That shelter is protecting a pretty special structure there SDP!

The sculpture looks well protected!
