Maisonneuve Monument

Louis-Philippe Hébert was certainly the most famous sculptor of commemorative monuments in all of Canada, no doubt because of the lifelike quality of his creations. At the foot of the Maisonneuve Monument, four statues, including one of Jeanne Mance, who can be seen here caring for a young Native, recall individuals who played key roles in the founding of Montreal. Today, Jeanne Mance would probably be placed at the top of the monument, at Maisonneuve's side.
