Visitor Tips and News About Pagan Storyteller
Very interesting statue. The storyteller is surrounded by other animals who appear to be listening to a story. Not sure how long the statue will be there, there was a sign saying the park was going to be renovated.
Also, not too far from here is the Giant Fish.[Chris Gemlo, 06/07/2010]
A large sculpture of a seated man with a buck head (get it....buckhead). He's holding a large tree branch staff (looks like it may have lights on it). Quite a unique thing to see in the middle of the bible belt. The statue reminded me of the old celtic Lord of the Wild Hunt. Definitely worth a look see.[Heidi, 01/13/2001]
The Storyteller, also known as The Buck Man, was created in 1998 by Frank Fleming. The bronze tableau in Buckhead Triangle Park includes small sculptures of woodland creatures, arrayed around a naked bronze man with an antlered buck head. He is sitting on a log and holding a forked pole with what looks like two lanterns on the top (for another pagan fountain creation by Fleming, head to 5-Points in Birmingham, Alabama). In the same neighborhood as a giant leaping fish and a couple of silvery naked men.
