This statue of Tom Thomson is a depiction of him painting an outdoor sketch in Algonquin Park. Thomson would quickly paint the scenery about him, and capturing the essence of the moment on wooden panels. You can see the paint box on his lap, with a panel inserted in the slots of the lid. After finishing his sketch, he would close the box which would protect the painting from smudging until he was able to return to camp and take it out to dry. This was the way most of the Group of Seven created their outdoor sketches.
