"the dala Horse is in Avesta and träbjörnen in Sveg is necessary"
"the dala Horse in Avesta, träbjörnen in Sveg, and it is huge Y:et outside Timrå. All the famous landmarks and all, they must be restored for millions in order to not fall apart."
"According to Swedish Radio's Kulturnytt have Lennart Åslunds big träbjörn, which is placed where the drives available meet in Sveg in Härjedalen, sweden, has begun to leak into water and the head has begun to droop. The bear, which was erected in 2005, have received a quilt on the back and the head has stagats up. But even if the acute problems are resolved has härjedalen most likely cannot afford a large-scale renovation."
"– We have probably been hard to put any large sums of money to restore the bear as a landmark, unfortunately. It is enough so that when you do this you should already from the beginning count on it will cost you money in the long term as well, " said kommunchefen Gunnel Gyllander to the SR."
"Even the large dala horse is in Avesta have been adversely affected by the weather and the wind and started to crack and is now being renovated, as well as Bengt Lindström's huge Y-a sculpture outside Timrå. However, it is about millions of dollars for municipalities, around five million for Timrås part."
"– this is a sculpture in the kolossalformat of the world famous artist Bengt Lindström and I think it is worth the money to restore it to its original glory. I don't think that you thought about underhållsperspektivet when it was erected. But it is important to include this in the calculations when a municipality makes such an investment, " says Stefan Dalin (S), the president in Timrå, sweden to SR."
