ROCKPORT — The Andre the Seal sculpture at Rockport Marine park is newly repaired, and all one piece again. The sculpture broke Sept. 22. The cause of the break was a failure of a repair to a crack in the limestone sculpture created by Jane Wasey in 1979.

This wouldn't happen if Andre would keep his nose where it belongs.

Hopefully those who repaired it so poorly last time for half a year's pay paid for this.

Awwww, Andre looks like himself again.  The memories come flooding back when I see his sculpture.  He was one very very special seal too many in the Mid Coast and beyond.
