This equestrian sculpture and historic water trough pays homage to those who trod before us. Horses ascending from the waterfront on the left side hauled supplies up the steep incline to developing commercial and residential sites. The path formed by stainless steel hoof prints leads to the place where horses paused for a much needed rest.
The Long Ascent
Sculpture - Bronze and steel horse, stainless steel hoof prints
About the Artists:
Veronica de Nogales Leprevost, born in Barcelona in 1970, and Edwin Timothy Dam, born in Hamilton, Ontario in the same year, met at an exhibition in 1997 at the Gereralitat de Barcelona. Discovering that they shared an intense curiosity for life, nature and sculpting, they married and began exhibiting together. Over time it became increasingly difficult to distinguish the works of one from the other so they then began to sculpt together, co-signing each work they created. Now residing in Canada, the pair create large scale public scuptures.
