dc.descriptionOne figure, the "French Poodle", overall side view; Cast by Atelier du Bronze foundry, this is a two-piece "diptych" sculpture of two over-life-size figures of a masked man, holding a pug and a masked woman holding a miniature French poodle, symbolizing the British and French heritage in Canada with both realism and a sense of social satire. The Pug and the French Poodle are looking at each other across the plaza while the owners are looking in opposite directions. Fortier was born in Montreal. Source: M.A.J.
