Fontaine de La Morandière
GETTING TO the La Morandière fountain
Arranged in the center of a slate-tiled terrace, this tribute to water and our pioneers is unveiled. This fountain is entirely made from aluminium, decorated with sculptures in bas-relief on latex block filler.
Water flows and cascades into a pool
From its center rises a rectangular column from which the water flows and cascades into its pool.
These two waterfalls running down opposite sides represent Abitibi and its waterways, which have the distinction of running both towards the north, James Bay, and towards the south, the St. Laurence River. This is the watershed.
The sculptured scenes present two illustrations of the history of the region.
Scene 1: the individual with a spruce headdress represents the ancient promises of a kingdom, its prosperity and its labors. Waterways, wildlife and rural scenes are represented in both scenes.
To the pioneer settlers
This scene pays tribute to the pioneer settlers, both men and women, who occupied, developed and populated this territory.
