I was out visiting the galleries along Vancouver's Granville Street, and it looks as though Emily was out doing some sketching.
Oddly enough, an exact replica of this statue is to be found on Montreal's Sherbrooke Street, in another gallery area. I'm always surprised and delighted when I run into it there as well. (Forgetfulness does have some advantages!)
The sculpture is by Canadian artist, Joe Fafard, who hails from the Prairies. I wonder if there's another Emily sculpture in Winnipeg.
