Unkind nickname for a large sculpture placed at the intersection of University Avenue and Dundas Street in Toronto, Ontario. The sculpture is a memorial to Canadian air crew, and lists RCAF members who have been granted the Victoria Cross.

It is referred to as ``Gumby goes to Heaven'' because it is formed of a black marble base, upon which is set a tall vaguely human figure whose outreached hands and upturned head face a bird floating above the hands. All is in greenish bronze by now. ``Gumby goes to Heaven'' is probably the polite alternative to ``Gumby receives the Holy Spirit''.

Odd note is that the statue was placed through the generosity of the Jackman family.
