Montreal buildings

These are two decorative panels I spotted in the McGill ghetto area. They are set into the wall on either side of the front door of a big old apartment house. I am sure hundreds of students have hurried in and out of that door running to class or to some party, football game or rendezvous. I love that this classical pair is still hanging around this modern university. Pretty sure the lady is Artemis the huntress but the gentleman is a bit of a mystery to me. Is it Odysseus? I wonder who made these lovely plaques and if there are any others in the city. Wonderful to see as I walk along the street.
