“The Rower” is the name of this photo situated at Quidi Vidi Lake which is a great walking trail.
That concept was “The Rower”, which now graces the western edge of the lake, and that someone is Elinor Gill Ratcliffe, who split the $300,000 price tag with the City of St. John’s.
The statue was sculpted by MacDonald in New Hamburg, Ontario, and cast in Georgetown, Ontario, between January to July 2005. Cast in bronze, the Rower is an abstract personification of the Regatta Day rower. His racing shell isn’t fully included, but wave-like formations around the base symbolizes the craft’s wake.
A 10 mm focal length was used to get a different perspective.
