Seither started with a new modern football helmet and painted it much like he would a canvas in colors of green, gold and purple, reminiscent of Mardi Gras. There is also the image of the Superdome and a Bourbon Street lamp post on the top of the helmet and the 'MVP' letters on the visor in a burst of colors.
"I tried to treat it just like a painting or a canvas and I didn't let anything inhibit me," said Seither. "As you look at the detail, that's the detail I would have gotten on a painting. People are going nuts over it. I think people relate to a football helmet. It gets people going."
