Have we changed the world, or has the world changed us?

This sculpture, representing the world, was created by Marcel Gagnon. The work of art can be seen at the Jardin Céleste at Parc Clair-Soleil in Témiscouata (on Highway 85 between Rivière-du-Loup and the New Brunswick border).

Canadian multidisciplinary artist Marcel Gagnon is the creator of a large-scale art project called Le Grand Rassemblement (The Grand Gathering), which consists of over 80 human-like sculptures that seem to be rising from the St. Lawrence River at low tide in Sainte-Flavie (on Highway 132, near Mont-Joli), where his art centre is located.
