Scrap metal stag.

Giant Stag Made of Junk

Field review by the editors.

Converse, Texas

"King of the Parc" was built of rusted fenders, license plates, typewriters, bicycle seats, engine parts, etc., by Mexico City sculptor Florentino Narcis, then disassembled and shipped to Texas as the community centerpiece of a housing development named "The Parc at Escondido." The stag, 40 feet tall, is heroically posed atop a small mound of sodded earth, keeping predatory lenders at bay, we hope.
