Metalmorphosis - Giant Head

Metalmorphosis is currently under repair, but worth a stop!

Metalmorphosis - Giant Head

The head has been dismantled for repairs. We talked with the security officer at the office park where the head resides, and we were informed that it will return in a couple of months.

Metalmorphosis - Giant Head

Metalmorphosis didn't seem to be moving.

Metalmorphosis - Giant Head

Just a drive-by today. It's not dismantled, but it doesn't seem to move or shift shape as described any more. Pretty cool nonetheless.

[Scot Campbell, 06/10/2013]

The head was recently refurbished and placed back in the fountain. No guarantee it will be moving during a visit.

Metalmorphosis - Giant Head

It's back! We live nearby and look for it each time we drive down Hwy 485. Saw the giant sculpture was back in place as we drove by this evening.
