15 Mother Orca and Calf Topiary in Victoria, Canada

Another tribute to Victoria’s resident orca population is on the corner of Wharf and Humboldt Streets. The artwork was created in 2010 by Sandra Bilawich. The seasonal topiary featuring a mother and her calf is called The Surfacing. The sculpture is 21 feet long. The average male killer whale measures 20 to 26 feet. Orcas are not the only amazing wildlife living along the harbor. Others include gray and humpback whales, porpoises, harbor seals and California sea lions plus an occasional bald eagle.
