Eagles (Ughels?)

Patty, I couldn't agree more; they're stupid, unattractive (if not ugly) but, worst of all when it comes to 'art', unimaginative. They (Lions) are simpy recycling an idea that was ok the first time and maybe tolerable the second, but STTTOPPPPPP!!! I saw a Spanish-speaking family taking a quick picture by one last week, after which the dad said "vamos". Exactly: 'lets get out of here!'
But E.G.: not all the bears in PG were ugly. On the whole they were more original than the Vancouver ones (maybe we related more to bears there); one (in front of the art gallery) was pretty damned cool; a poem incised/cut out of the bear. I liked it.
What's next: fibreglass beavers? Put money on it.

Majestic Linden

The Linden one is by far the worst:

But don't be too hard on it. Apparently it was done by a Richard Brodeur. This Richard Brodeur?

...if you can't make the pilgrimage to Spotted Frog Furniture Co. in Richmond to see “Dancing on Air” in person.

Ugh.

They did cows in Calgary (of course) and bears in Prince George (of course). They were *slightly* better than these eagles (which have also recently shown up in PG). I'm not sure why... perhaps the larger canvas with which to work?

The weirdest bear was a Spiderman/First Nations fusion one that showed up at the UNBC campus and later moved downtown.

Here's a PDF map with garish pictures of the remaining bears (including the Spiderman one):
