Just to let everyone know, very exciting news, amazing sculptor Charles Buchanan is sculpting Brigadier. Hoping to be able raise funds so that we can have a life size bronze done and possibly find a home for it at Police Headquarters or Mounted Headquarters, not sure. It would be so amazing to have such a beautiful and permanent tribute to him.

Hello honourable people,

As a sculptor, with a police background, my creations are of people and things equestrian, so I have taken it upon myself to sculpt/model a statuette of deceased Toronto Mounted Police horse, Brigadier. With permission I am using reference photographs by Toronto photographer Anne de Haas, who has been associated with the TMP unit for some years. Brigadier is being modelled in a classical pose, as photographically captured by Anne on the shore of Lake Ontario, the pose being similar to George F. Watts’ colossal statue, ‘Physical Energy’ and Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘horse’.

I would like to keep you all updated on my progress as I ultimately believe that in his memory, the work should be cast in bronze for permanent display.

Yours sincerely

Charles Buchanan

About Anne de Haas

I'm a Toronto photographer specializing in portraits, executive portraits, actor headshots, musician portfolios, CD covers etc. I love shooting horses as well. I feel that photography is not so much about technology and equipment as it is about emotions and capturing the ephemeral. If there's a connection between photographer and subject then the result is something quite special.
