La Grande Hermine
Jordan Harbour Marina, Ontario
Limited Edition of 50
La Grande Hermine or The Big Weasel floats only a few feet from he shore line of Lake Ontario and just off the QEW highway. This ship is an exact replica of the vessel that explore Jacques Cartier sailed on int he 1500s.
A replica of that ship was featured at Expo '67 in Montreal, Quebec as a floating restaurant and was later moved to Quebec City. After sitting fro decades it was destroyed.
This third version was bought by a wealthy businessman and was intended as a business venture to be either another floating restaurant or casino. Unfortunately the business failed to get off the ground and the ship was abandoned. In 2003 a fire destroyed most of it and it's been sitting, rusting in the harbour ever since.

The print is then backed with a protective surface and finished by adding a rear mounted inset frame, which gives the ready to hang acrylic print the appearance of floating off the wall. For these pieces, TruLife® Acrylic is replaced with an optically clear 1/8" gallery quality acrylic thus providing the cost savings.
