Car Parts Lizard

Field review by the editors.

St. Petersburg, Florida

The 30-foot-long "Security Lizard" was welded from old chrome bumpers, traffic signals, and license plates by artist Paul Eppling (1949-2016). Its long tongue is pulling down a giant fly. The sculpture is on the roof of the City of St. Petersburg Fleet Management building, visible from Interstate 275.

7th Ave. N., St. Petersburg, FL
