Location: This sculptured water fountain is located in the Leo Mol Sculptured Gardens in Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada….

Leo Mol is an internationally renowned sculptor and artist. Born Leonid Molodozhanyn in Polonne, Ukraine, Mol studied sculpture at the Leningrad Academy of Arts from 1936 to 1940. Following the German invasion of the Soviet Union he moved to Germany where he was influenced by Arno Breker. In 1945, he moved to The Hague, and in December, 1948, he and his wife, Magareth (whom he married in 1943), emigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

More than three hundred of Mol’s works are displayed in the Leo Mol Sculpture Gardens in Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park. The garden was unveiled in 1992 and has been expanded twice since. It is supported by private donations, and Mol personally donated most of the sculptures. In 2002, his sculpture Lumberjacks was featured on a Canadian postage stamp.

He was always known as a particularly prolific artist and some of his most famous works include likenesses of three different Popes which stand in museums in the Vatican. He also has a sculpture of Taras Shevchenko on display on Washington’s Embassy Row.

Other important subjects who Mol sculpted include members of the Group of 7, A. J. Casson, A.Y. Jackson and Frederick Varley. Mol also sculpted Sir Winston Churchill 1966, Peter Kuch, Dwight D. Eisenhower 1965, John F. Kennedy 1969, Elizabeth Bradford Holbrook ca. 1970, Terry Fox 1982.. On Parliment Hill in Ottawa stands his impressive over life-size standing portrait figure of Prime Minister John George Diefenbaker 1985. Also on Parliament Hill stands an impressive bronze statue of Queen Elizabeth II.

In 1989 he was appointed an officer of the ORDER OF CANADA in recognition of his artistic contributions to his adopted country….Note: Leo recently passed away peacefully at the age of 94 on July 4, 2009
