Redone art, the good and the bad

Kwakiutl Totem Pole
For my Downtown Places blog I profile the Kwakiutl Totem Pole on the south grounds of the Manitoba Legislature. Donated by B.C. in 1971, by the turn of the century the totem was in bad repair and rot had set in. Local artist Dwayne Ball spent a month in the summer of 2006 restoring it.

I also found a site that profiles some of the worst in redone art in a section they call: Awful Hockey Card Art. Those horrible 'paint-overs' of new jerseys onto old player pictures. Here is Randy Cunnyworth which actually gets a pretty good review given the difficulty of the Jets' logo.
