The Chief.

Carved Indian Chief

Field review by the editors.

Laytonville, California

A large painted wood carving of an Indian chief stands with arms crossed and a welcoming smile for patrons of a restaurant and pub. Before that it was a barbecue restaurant and laundromat -- but both businesses wisely used "Big Chief" in their names. It looks as if he's been weathering there for a long time.
