Wordless Wednesday : “La Fermière” by Alfred Laliberté

La Fermière is a sculptural fountain realized by Alfred Laliberté in 1915, and located at the Marché Maisonneuve in Montreal. You can see the woman farmer on the top, young men struggling with animals at the center, and turtles splashing water all around. It is a most appropriate sculpture for the market 🙂

Photographed by me on July 17th.

    I lived in Montreal for 11 years (1999 to 2010) and always thought of myself as a perpetual tourist in my own city…now I’m ashamed to say I have never seen this and it’s beautiful! It’s definitely going to be a must-see the next time I go back to visit friends.

    Also, hi! I’m a fellow book addict currently living in Gatineau and taking full advantage of Ottawa’s AMAZING library system. I’d take advantage of Gat’s, but je n’est parle le francais du tout!
