John Glenn Monument.

Top Half of John Glenn

Field review by the editors.

Navarre, Ohio

An unusual statue of John Glenn -- only his top half -- in his Mercury "Right Stuff" space suit, reaching skyward toward stars with vapor trails. His other arm cradles the top half of his helmet. The sculpture, by Colorado artist Indigo Loveland, was dedicated in Oct. 2000. Although Glenn grew up in Ohio, it wasn't near Navarre or this odd tribute, which makes it look as if Glenn is standing inside its brick pedestal, trying to grab some shooting stars to yank him out.
