The splendid First Nations bas-relief carving above hangs on one wall of the Victoria Harbour Airport. It is by Kwakwaka'wakw carver Richard Hunt and is called "My Family." Below is the airport waiting room and check-in. The entire airport terminal was built in Bamberton on the Saanich Inlet and then floated around the coast and anchored here.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia.
