A Manitoba Heritage Legacy Project

A unique gift titled "The Quantum Collection" was presented to Lt.Gov. Janice Filmon for display at Government House on Tuesday January 26, 2016.

The Military Heritage of Manitoba group presented four bronze figurines of iconic individuals who represent the quantum advances of development in each of the four centuries of Manitoba recorded history and heritage. 

The Quantum Collection project was designed to stimulate the knowledge of and interest in the province's history and combine this legacy though art to inspire Manitoba's youth to understand and celebrate the significance of their heritage.

The display of each era of the 400-year achievements is depicted by an art collection of bronze figurines created by Manitoba visual artist Erin Senko. Each piece is of one figure selected for each century.
