Arthur Erickson and landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander originally intended the pool to be opened as part of the new Museum of Anthropology in 1976; now, nearly 35 years later, their original vision for MOA has been fulfilled.
Pools had been installed temporarily three times in MOA’s history: for a movie shoot in 1993, for the APEC leaders’ summit in 1997, and to celebrate Arthur Erickson’s 80th birthday in June 2004.
MOA houses 38,000 ethnographic objects, as well as 535,000 archaeological objects in its building alone. On March 9, 1999, Canada Post issued a stamp commemorating the museum, designed by Barbara Hodgson, based on photographs by William Mc Lennan and Jacqueline Gijssen, and prominently featuring the sculpture The Raven and the First Men by Bill Reid.
