Changing Time – Youth Mosaic

Starting on the left, the pagoda with firecrackers represents old China; the middle stand a robot holding bubble tea that represents modernity; towards the right side of the mural, you will see a dragon, starting in China, leaning to towards the Calgary Tower and Bow Tower with its head wrapped around downtown, representing strength and longevity.
