Wooden sugar mold with a heart shape

More than just a sweet treat, maple products are strongly linked to the French-Canadian identity. Molds in the shape of hearts, Christmas trees and horses are often found in Québec folk art. The molds presented here were made by hand by members of Viateur Richard’s family, who were maple producers from father to son in Cap-Saint-Ignace.
