Vandalized statue being refinished in Williams Lake

A mountain racer statue carved by Ken Sheen in 2009 is being refinished after it was recently vandalized.

A mountain racer statue carved by Ken Sheen in 2009 is receiving a full refinishing after it was recently vandalized, losing its arms and part of its hat.

On Wednesday morning local mural artist Dwayne Davis and helper Stew Davis were working on the statue, which is located near the Chevron Station at the junction of Highway 97 and Highway 20 in Williams Lake.

Dwayne said Sheen is making new arms for the statue that should be ready in a couple of weeks.

“It will probably be repainted too,” Dwayne said of the refinishing project.

The mountain racer is one of several Stampede theme statues Sheen made for the city.
