"Isolated on the ridge, the Vimy Monument rises from the ground and engages with both the landscape and the sky. Here its sculptural figures passionately perform their roles. As in a Greek tragedy, they speak to the nature of war and the ongoing human struggle to contain the forces of disorder - forces that are part of our very humanity.

 

Now that the monument has been restored, we can once again climb up to its platform and partake of its drama."
