Atthe end of July, the monument of the Canada Games 2013, created from ‘Stanstead grey’ granite and installed on the campus of Bishop’s University, was inaugurated. On the seven ton piece of granite, rock artist David Martel painted one of his ‘Blue Angels’ surrounded by 20 pictograms of the sports at the Games. The artist also added a symbolic interpretation of the logo of the Canada Games with three Olympic rings each with the number 111.
David Martel’s Blue Angels have been exhibited at more than 200 extreme and sacred sites around the world: monasteries, caves, mines, palaces, in the Caribbean Sea, the Amazon jungle, in the ice, in Mayan temples as well as in the interior of an active volcano.
