Enderby Unveils Landmark
Created in Enderby, a 10-foot tall metal mule deer has come home for good.
The sculpture, made in his Enderby shop by Braden Kiefiuk of Majestic Metal Art, had been on loan to a business in Salmon Arm.
But after striking up a conversation in the winter over curling with Enderby Coun. Tundra Baird, it was decided that the deer belonged where it was born.
The city donated a small plot of land on Highway 97A beside city hall and the museum. Last week, the metal sculpture was permanently ensconced by Kiefiuk, who had a hand from Central Hardware crane operator Sam Hadden to lift the deer into place before the final bolts were screwed into place.

Called Mélemstye, in Secwépemc oral history, the wolf—’Mélemstye’ teaches people to hunt and the important qualities a hunter needs to be successful, according to the university’s website.
"The same qualities that make a successful hunter—patience, vigilance, alertness, teamwork and an understanding of the environment, among others—are also important for a successful student. Like the hunter, the student must devise a strategy to reach their end goal," according to the university.
MAJESTIC MOOSE IS LOOSE
Majestic moose sculpture so big it had to be lifted through roof of sculptor's shop

North Okanagan metal sculptor Braden Kiefiuk had to remove the roof from his workshop to get his latest creation out.
Kiefiuk says the gigantic moose sculpture had to be craned out of the Armstrong-area shop.
"He’s so big that I had to remove a section of the roof to get him out of the shop and hired a local Hiab truck to do the lift," Kiefiuk wrote on the Majestic Metal Art Facebook page.
He says he started the project 10 years ago, but "pushed it to the back" while he worked on commissioned pieces.

Braden Kiefiuk literally lifted the roof off his latest art project.
The owner of Majestic Metal Art in Spallumcheen needed to take panels off the roof of his Spallumcheen shop in order to get an eight-foot-high moose resting on 3/16th steel, featuring 4,000-to-5,000 pieces of metal and weighing between 800- and 1,000-pounds, out into the world.
“I built him the size I wanted knowing by the time it was finished I wouldn’t be able to get it out the door (of the shop),” said Kiefiuk, 56. “I had (Armstrong’s) Shepherd’s Hardware hiab truck lift it out for me. It was pretty cool.”
