Outside Burnaby North High School is a massive painted bust of a Viking. It was designed by John Clark, a welding teacher, as a way of inspiring students to improve their skills. The steel-welded Viking head remained unfinished for three to four years after Clark left the school. Persuaded by former students to finish the work, Clark and student volunteers completed the bust in 1994.
