A Gord Downie tribute sculpture has been unveiled at Halifax City Hall, in a room that aims to foster conversations about Indigenous reconciliation.

The sculpture of the late Tragically Hip frontman was created by artist Al Hattie using recycled metals that emulate a microphone stand and Downie's signature hat, complete with feathers.

On a wall behind the sculpture titled "The Last Show'' is the shadowy profile of Downie.

The piece is situated in city hall's Legacy Space, the first municipal building in Canada with a room dedicated to reconciliation.

The concept of legacy rooms is the brainchild of Assembly of First Nations regional Chief Morley Googoo, who worked with Downie to make it a reality before his 2017 death. (The Canadian Press)
