STYNA created this mural for the 2022 Nelson International Mural Festival on the roof of Kootenay Lake Hospital’s emergency department. The wall is visible from view street, as well as visible to the patients in the hospital’s palliative care ward.

“Wild Geese” is inspired by Mary Oliver’s poem “Wild Geese”.
