Video: Big Indian Shrine Gets A Copper Roof

After several decades of slow deterioration the Big Indian Rudi Shrine has received a new copper roof that was handcrafted by Ken St. John. He learned his craft from a master tinsmith back in 1929. After four months of work the shrine that covers the Rudi statue overlooking the Big Indian pond now shimmers on the hill. Says Bruce Denny: “This roof is our contribution to maintaining Rudi’s legacy for generations yet to come. This will last for maybe a hundred years, and we’ll be long gone, but this will be here.”
