This is the sculpture that inspired the title of Margaret Laurence's famous novel (well, it's famous here in Canada –not sure how well known it's elsewhere). It's in the Riverside Cemetery in Neepawa, the real town that inspired the fictitious town of Manawaka described in this and other books of Laurence. What I found interesting about the sculpture is that it seems to convey a different mood depending on the angle you look at it, especially the eyes. (You know, much like Mona Lisa's eyes follow you if you move around the room.) Maybe it's just me, but I've decided to post quite a bunch of the photos I took of it so you can decide for yourselves. And it's a freaking beautiful sculpture too... 1. 2. 3. 4, 5. 6. Thanks for looking.
