This gilded wooden sculpture is the campanion-piece to a sculpture in the National Gallery of Canada. Both are frequently attributed to the studio of Thomas Baillargé (1791-1859), a sculptor and architect and the son of François Baillargé. It is now possible to state with certainty that the sculptures were made by Thomas Baillargé. They were commissioned by Église Saint-Germain, now the cathedral of the city of Rimouski.
