Photo: Bronze Sculpture Caribou Seal River Crossing Richardson Building Winnipeg Manitoba

The front of the bronze sculpture of caribous crossing a river, which is actually called 'Seal River Crossing' stands proudly outside the Richardson Building, near the Canwest Place Building in downtown Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada.

This bronze sculpture of caribous crossing a river, which some think is oddly titled "Seal River Crossing", can be seen outside the Richardson Building, with the Canwest Building in the background in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba. This work stands at the corner of Portage Avenue and Main Street, and is 29 feet long. It represents 11 caribou fighting their way to cross a turbulent river. The struggle and the determination can be seen on the caribous' faces and in their strong bodies as they battle against the water and try to make it to the other side.

It was commissioned James Richardson and Sons Ltd, to stand outside their tall building in downtown Winnipeg as it was the 150th anniversary of the beginning of their business. There were five editions made of this sculpture and four out of the five of the editions have been sold - one is still available for purchase. ... continue below the picture...

Caribou are a wild form of reindeer and in North America they can be found across Alaska and Canada and in the Northern United States. They are a migratory animal and so would cross many rivers like the one depicted in this sculpture.

The Richardson Building has been a prominent building on the Winnipeg skyline for decades and it is easily recognizable from the air and from down below.
