The Man with Two Hats, found in Ottawa’s Commissioners Park, is a replica of de Man met twee hoeden located in the city of Apeldoorn in the Netherlands. The original statue was created by Dutch artist Henk Visch and unveiled in 2000 as a monument to the role of Canadian soldiers in the liberation of the Netherlands during the Second World War. According to Veterans Affairs Canada, “The twin statues exemplify the strong ties between the Netherlands and Canada.”
