Vimy_Memorial

A cloaked figure stands at the front, or east side, of the monument overlooking the Douai Plain. It was carved from a single, 30-tonne block and is the largest piece in the monument. This sorrowing figure of a woman represents Canada, a young nation mourning her dead. Below is a tomb, draped in laurel branches and bearing a helmet and sword.
