TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – Tuscaloosa is a city known for, among many other things, its football, the University of Alabama and the coaches who have become legends during their time in Tuscsaloosa.

Now, Druid City Brewing Company is displaying a work of art that provides a unique visualization of two of those coaches.

The drawing, which is on display in the taproom, is made to appear similar to the famous Michelangelo painting.

In the drawing, legendary head coach Bear Bryant is seen handing over a crystal football to current Alabama head coach Nick Saban.

Druid City Brewing Company says they plan to keep up the illustration for a while, but they are also interested in more illustrations incorporating famous works of art.

They say the art is in no way a religious statement or critique. Rather, it’s merely a tongue-in-cheek reference to a famous painting at the start of football season.
