Photo: Whispering Giant Statue Winnipeg Beach Manitoba Canada

The Whispering Giant, a carved cedar tribute to the First Nations People of North American, can be seen in the town of Winnipeg Beach, a Provincial Recreation Area in Manitoba, Canada.

The Whispering Giant statue was carved from a native red cedar log supplied by the Parks Department of the Province of Manitoba in 1991.

The massive piece of wood was 35 feet long, 6 feet in diameter and weighed almost 10 tonnes. The town of Winnipeg Beach in Manitoba, Canada, on the western shore of Lake Winnipeg is one of the many places in North America (and Hawaii) to possess a Whispering Giant carving.

The creator of these statues, carved in tribute to the many tribes of the First Nations People, is Peter Wolf Toth, a sculptor who was born in Hungary, emigrated to the United States and settled in Ohio. Toth has carved over 60 'Giants' in all 50 United States and in some of the Canadian Provinces. The first of the 'Trail of the Whispering Giants' was carved on the face of a sandstone bluff in La Jolla, California. ... continue below the picture...

... This work was completed in 1972 and was almost 6 feet in height, but subsequent creations were much bigger.

With the cooperation of the community, the Parks Department and the council,The Whispering Giant of Winnipeg Beach in Manitoba, was carved on site during the summer of 1991. Mr. Toth repairs and maintains his works of art so that they may be enjoyed for future generations. The town of Winnipeg Beach is about a 15 minute drive from Gimli, Manitoba and close enough to Winnipeg to enjoy a day's outing to see this interesting little historic resort town.
