Comments:
An outdoor sculpture that is actually a fountain was made by Charles Daudelin and is a gift from Quebec to the city of Paris, and is even located in the square named after the Canadian province. The fountain is built so that it looks as if a stream of water has split the pavement and lifted the paving stones up.

"Ice jam" symbolizes the blockage of the waterway by large blocks of ice, and indicates the winter when the St. Lawrence River freezes and stops the movement of water.
