5 Timepiece Sculpture at Market Square in Saint John, Canada

Market Square is a shopping mall with places to eat ranging from a coffee shop to a steakhouse. You will also find a public library. Perhaps most interesting is the New Brunswick Museum. Abraham Gesner was the founder of a natural history museum in 1842. His extensive collection was expanded to include cultural heritage, history and decorative arts from Canada’s eastern provinces. These sculpted gentlemen appear to be patiently waiting for their spouses to return. The ensemble by John Hooper is named Timepiece. Unlike most clock towers, it does not have a traditional face with hands. Instead, the serpent and the four people on top rotate to indicate the time.
