Two maquettes of gargoyles carved as models for the grotesques that would subsequently be carved in the upper corners of the entrance to the Senate Chamber of Canadian Parliament. The maquettes were donated by the family of Thomas Dunlop Rankin (1886-1965) who supervised the reconstruction of Parliament Centre Block (1916-1927). Initials carved into the grotesques "W.J.A." are those of Walter Joseph Allen who was an English sculptor employed on the construction of the Centre Block. Allen worked as the superintendent of the modeling and carving shop and was responsible for the team of carvers from April 1917 to June 1924.Sans titre
