Sports

Of Hills and Water route

The ""Of Hills and Water Route'' is a public art circuit that highlights the historical, cultural and natural heritage of the seven municipalities of the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais. (cont'd)

John-Philippe Smith was chosen by the Municipality of Pontiac among 8 projects received following a public competition launched in 2016.

The sculpture entitled « At the crossroads » is inspired by the old military boundaries found along the roads since ancient times, but also the obelisks, which over the centuries, were used to commemorate the memory of an event or a person. The 8-foot fall sculpture is oriented according to the cardinal points.

Each facade illustrates a different aspect of the Municipality’s history. The north recalls the unique geology of the Eardley escarpment and the Luskville Falls, while the South depicts sturgeons and trilobites, species that inhabited the Champlain Sea 12,000 years ago. The East side gives tribute to the indigenous people who used the river for trade, travel and as a food source. Finally, the West facade recalls the arrival of settlers of European origin (Irish, Scottish, English and French Canadians) and their economic activities.
