Winston Bronnum (1929-1991) was a self-taught Dano-Canadian nature artist, sculptor and entrepreneur known for his large concrete animal sculptures which adorn Canadian roadsides. He founded and operated the defunct Animaland Park which showcased a number of his works and served as his workshop. He worked on bridges and hydro dams early on which helped when designing and building the structures.[1] His family name was originally spelled Brønnum.
