    The mural, which was made in a workshop in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, is 8 feet high and 24 feet in length.

    From there, it was transported in five pieces to its location at 1176 Bishop St.

    “We unified the five sections to adjust the texture and surface,” Monast told Global News.

    “It’s important to properly marry the sections together.”

    The artwork was made possible through 50 hours of work by 10 people.
