Historic Sites of Manitoba: Jon Sigurdsson Statue (450 Broadway, Winnipeg)

This statue, on the north grounds of the Manitoba Legislative Building, commemorates Jon Sigurdsson (1811-1879), who led the movement for 19th century Icelandic independence. Made by Icelandic sculptor Einar Jonsson (1874-1954), it was cast in 1921 from an identical statue in Reykjavík, Iceland and erected by the Icelandic community of Manitoba.
