Chemainus is a small lumber town where the lumber some years ago stopped supporting the town. The business community led by individual inspiration came up with an idea. They set out to make the town look real pretty with accent on its history with the idea of attracting tourists and by golly it worked like a hot damn. Chemainus most years is a very busy place from Easter till September or October.
Part of the face lifting had to do with the painting of life size or larger murals depicting Chemainus history. I like to show some of these clever and beautiful murals later, but today is about two statues that I like. The first statue about snipe hunters portrays two brothers I know.
This photo was taken years ago and here is today’s Jash and Stefan.
Initially I assumed vandalism on this statue, but nothing else is damaged so I reckon the damage was accidental or natural (act of God?). The question is whether the statue is going to be repaired or removed.
My favorite statue is the next one. In my head it is known as true love forever.
