Journeying Canada

Here is another view of The Lobster Fisherman, representing Nova Scotia.

The Canadian Horse is the title of this sculpture set representing New Brunswick.

Three Ships From France represents the province of Quebec, and this one evokes the journeys of Jacques Cartier.

This one was done to represent Ontario. Five human figures are emerging from the waters of the Great Lakes, representing different backgrounds. It is titled The Niagara Gateway.

Canada 150: A Powerful Symbol is the title of this work. 

Another view of what's to come.


  1. This is amazing. I didn't think anything could top your winter festival but this is equally spectacular. I love how that horse is rising out of the foliage...but then I have to say I love it all.

  2. Those flower sculptures are beautiful.

  3. Another great series William. I love the lobster fisherman, it's truly an amazing piece of work.

  4. I cannot fathom all of the details that go in to making something like today's fisherman.


  5. Oh la! The three French ships are magnificent!

  23. Quite the show! Great sculptures, but did love the horse.

  24. @Denise: you're welcome!

    @Norma: the next time I do a series, it'll be longer than this one is, and I'll show more detail of the horses.

    @Beth: it had to have been planned well in advance, but the event is funded by three levels of government, and I suppose there's also some private sponsorship, but not in any obtrusive way. It's actually free to get into.

    @Mari: thank you!

    @Janey: they are quite a sight to behold.
