The centerpiece mosaic "In the Beginning...Today...Forever..." was commissioned by the Ukrainian Women's Association of Canada, Princess Ol'ha Branch, St. Michael's Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Edmonton to commemorate their 50th anniversary.

Within this piece are pysanky that are inscribed with the Lord's Prayer in both English & Ukrainian, the logo of the Ukrainian Women's Association of Canada, St. Andrew's cross and pysanky representing Jesus and his disciples. It is a remarkably detailed mosaic.

Do come in to see the mosaics before they go on to tour the rest of the world.
