Art of Bugs of Toronto
An armadillo rides a rhino at the sergeant's command, while Santa hangs out with a Tyrannosaurus Rex that looks tiny next to the giant grasshopper that sits on a flower. And spiders, beetles, and flies are everywhere.
While it sounds like it could be a scene from a wild B-movie, this is actually the scene on the elaborately decorated roof of the "Art of Bugs of Toronto" van. And I fully admit that I have no clue what any of it means.
I've seen this truly bizarrely decorated Plymouth Voyageur a couple times in passing through the Davenport neighbourhood, but until today I'd never crossed paths with it while toting my camera. My curiosity is now particularly piqued after returning home and not getting very far with Google (other than a few more photos).
Is it a traveling art exhibit? A creative, mobile ad for a toy store? Or simply an... err.. unconventional hobby?
