Long Description:
L’ensemble ornemental du sanctuaire tel que conçu par le chanoine Bouillon a été réalisé par toute une équipe d’artisans, d’ornemanistes et de sculpteurs dont les plus familiers s’appellent Philippe Pariseau, Flavien Rochon, Olindo Gratton ou Philippe Hébert. La plupart d’entre eux travaillaient à l’ornementation du Parlement d’Ottawa: ils étaient sur place et liés à la paroisse, ou fervents admirateurs de Bouillon. Ou encore, totalement inconnus, comme ce Philippe Hébert à qui Bouillon fit appel en 1879, alors que ce sculpteur de Montréal, sans fortune ni emploi, s’apprêtait à s’exiler aux États-unis. Philippe Hébert deviendra, par la suite, célèbre à travers le Canada pour ses monumentales sculptures de bronze. La cathédrale Notre-Dame d’Ottawa peut se glorifier de posséder plus de soixante sculptures sur bois de cet artiste, soit son plus imposant ensemble de bois sculpté.

The ornamental ensemble of the sanctuary conceived by Canon Bouillon was realized between 1876 and 1885 by a team of craftsmen, carpenters, and sculptors, the most familiar being Philippe Pariseau, Flavien Rochon, Olindo Gratton, and Philippe Hébert. Often the same men who laboured at the cathedral site also worked on the Parliament Buildings. Most of these men lived nearby and were either parishioners or fervent admirers of Bouillon, although some were total strangers to the city, such as Philippe Hébert, a Montreal artist whom Bouillon summoned in 1879. At that time this young sculptor had neither a job nor prospective employment and was planning to move to the United States. He later became famous throughout Canada for his monumental bronze sculptures, and the cathedral prides itself on having more than sixty of his wooden sculptures: his greatest sculptural ensemble.
