Joe Fafard Sculpture in Quebec City

Have you seen the Jo Fafard Sculpture in Quebec City?
Elizabeth Davies tells us more about it here:


A set of horse sculptures by celebrated Saskatchewan artist Joe Fafard named “Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do.

This gift of art from Calgary for Québec City’s 400th anniversary can be found on the Promenade Samuel de Champlain along the banks of the St. Lawrence River.
 
 The sculpture celebrates the Canadian horse, the role it played in the history of Canada and how it ties all Canadians.

The powder-coated 5/8-inch cut-steel plate horses are in different poses representing movement: past, present, future in a symphony of colours.
 
The group of 8 steel running horses has a twin in Québec City’s sister city Calgary. It can be admired downtown in a park in front of the new Calgary Court Centre.
