Silverado statue.

One-Log Kevin Costner

Field review by the editors.

Sacramento, California

The owner of Silverado Building Materials and Nursery was obviously a big fan of the 1985 movie Silverado. The movie was a successful western genre reboot starring Kevin Costner, Scott Glenn, Kevin Kline, Danny Glover, John Cleese. Costner was a young, likable rake named "Jake."

Sometime around 1993, this giant cowboy figure was erected at Silverado, where it still stands, among the plantings and flowers for sale. The sculpture is a stiff-carved and painted cowboy inspired by Costner's Jake character. It's 20 to 25-ft. tall, easily visible from the road.
