Anishinaabe artist crafts giant bead sculpture to honour SickKids patients – CBC

Apr 07, 2021

Monument to the Brave, made from over 250,000 beads, to be featured in new hospital building

Using thousands of beads, an Anishinaabe artist has woven a massive sculpture to represent the strength and resiliency of children who seek care at a Toronto hospital.

Monument to the Brave will be displayed in a new building at the Hospital for Sick Children which opens in 2023.

“I’m really excited about this project and hope that it inspires more Indigenous folks to make more artwork,” said artist Nico Williams, who is from Aamjiwnaang First Nation in southwestern Ontario and now lives in Montreal.

Williams, who is known for his geometric beadwork, started the sculpture in September with his studio team. They stitched together the 90-centimetre sculpture with 250,000 beads, plus 3,000 others that were donated from the hospital’s Bravery Bead Program.
