William E deGarthe Gallery & Monument

Nova Scotia

Finnish-born local artist William deGarthe (1907–83) carved the magnificent Lasting Monument to Nova Scotian Fishermen into a 30m granite outcrop behind his home. The sculpture depicts 32 fishers, their wives and children, St Elmo with wings spread, and the legendary Peggy of her eponymous cove. The homestead is now a gallery showcasing 65 of deGarthe's other works.
