The Maple Leaf: Such a simple, natural symbol, yet with so much power to reflect the elegance, grace and dignity of a nation and its people. Whether it's a humpback whale diving deep, ice crashing off a northern glacier or an arrow-straight chevron of honking geese soaring above some of the planet’s most remarkable landscapes, the Maple Leaf symbolizes Canada. Looking at it closely, we see far more than the leaf of a tree that grows in every province, far more than the centerpiece of our national flag. We feel the poetry of our national consciousness; distinctly Canadian poetry — the sound of a dripping paddle as we contemplate a summer sunrise, kids playing hockey on a frozen pond, and the heartbeat-like rhythm of Aboriginal drums echoing through the mists of time. The Aitkens Pewter Canadiana Ornament: An inspiring and lasting symbol of our nation and its people.
