This showing will be on display until November 23 and fea- ture sculptures and paintings on WW1. One of Tyler’s most famous works, a bronze military statue depicting his grandfather, William Briley, in British cavalry uniform seated on his horse, was purchased by the National War Museum in Ottawa. They appraised its value at $45,000. Tyler was also commissioned by General Motors of Canada to create the permanent award for their Corvette Challenge racing series. Another of his works, a red-tailed hawk carved out of a 400-pound slab of soapstone, was used as a fundraiser for the ornithological wing of the Royal Ontario Museum. Tyler’s 25cm bust of Daniel David Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, sits here in Port Perry. Another of Tyler’s commissions sits in the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. The work was commissioned by the Government of Canada to commemorate Lt-Col Sam Sharpe, an Uxbridge lawyer and MP who became so deeply affected by the loss of lives during the First World War that he died by suicide after his return to Canada. The sculpture will finally recognize Lt-Col Sharpe as an MP who died due to war injuries. It was an emotional piece for Tyler to work on, as he knew all too well the effects of PTSD from his time as a firefighter on the recovery truck with Scarborough Fire Department. Tyler Briley lives and works here in Port Perry.
