The Canadian Association on Substance Abuse, a national organization, required the design of an award to honour important contributions to the field once a year. What's more, the award would be given at Government House (home of the Governor General of Canada) in an elaborate ceremony. Something appropriate was necessary. And that didn't mean flipping through catalogues of bowling trophies.
Teaming up with a foundry in Plantagenet, a dozen bronze statues were produced from the original wax - produced with the valuable guidance and encouragement of Bruce Garner and his wife Tamaya.
The result? A 10" bronze, depicting three androgynous figures climbing out of the bonds of substance abuse, each helping another as they push and pull their way to success...
