This work is inspired by children's imagination expreseed during the "Celebration of Art" hands-on workshop held at the Dalhousie Community Association in Calgary, in June 2016. This autumnal image with a pumpkin face is attractive both visually and tactilely, and can be complemented by olfactory experiences by using scented candles - three of the five senses. Legend has it that the three circles in the pattern rotate alone at midnight on the nights of the new moon in October. Then the pumpkin faces begin to tell fascinating stories about the stars and their planets until daybreak. They never fall asleep, and continue to look at the starry stripe of the Milky Way, gracefully presented right between them.
