“The statue in the Great Library is a World War One Memorial.
Frances Loring created the statue using Carrara marble.
Michelangelo used the same marble. The Rotunda statue and
the Great Library statue bear striking contrasts. The Rotunda
statue is filled with promise, life and hope for the future.”
“The Great Library statue portrays the Ontario lawyers and
students who lost their lives during the war. Their names
are inscribed on the statue. During this time Ontario had
less than two thousand lawyers. Approximately six percent
of the legal profession was lost during the war.”
